    One has to wonder why they've got a promotional picture of a Qualcomm SoC in piranha solution.

    The fact that nobody seems bothered about this explains why a Windows ARM machine isn't going to get any traction any time soon...

    Would make a cracking ChromeBook though. There is quite a big market for those.

    Windows is an x86 thing. Even Intel couldn't force the world to switch to Itanium, and Microsoft have ported Windows in some form to every major CPU architecture going before removing support. At one point DEC Alpha could emulate x86 code faster than any native Intel processor in Windows, but still no-one bought it.

    I presume people stick with x86 due do some concerns with compatibility. Which is daft, attempts to run properly old Windows software always seem to fail for me unless I fire up an old Windows 95, NT or XP virtual machine and emulate it even on native Windows.
