Hmmm... we've seen this "Windows-on-non-x86" movie twice before:
- Remember Alpha's? Digital (RIP) really thought MS would give them the
keys to the kingdom. There was a released version. It was good enough
to frighten Intel at the time (which was probably the reason MS did
it). Linux sold manyfolds more Alpha's than Windows.
- Ahhh, and of course MS found new suckers who bought the same
used story few years later (yes, I'm talking about Windows/PPC
that lived a very short life).
So far, MS failed misserably in the cellular space so there's a good
chance their exclusionary move on ARM will only help convince vendors
that shipping Androids (and by extension other Linuces) is safer bet.
