Microsoft designed Windows RT to get its newest OS on tablets using the popular ARM processor. It did this well, but in the process crippled it, making it a no-go for the consumer.
Efforts to bring new operating systems like Risc OS and FreeBSD to the cheap Linux board have been given a boost by a decision to fully open-source drivers for its ARM-based SoC.
Those busy creating apps for iOS and Android have to decide whether to build software for Windows 8 too, with forking of OS for x86- and ARM-based devices complicating matters, analysts note.
Hardware makers looking to build tablets that use the new Microsoft Windows RT are supposedly running into difficulties getting the new OS to work with ARM chips.
I said last year that this would happen sometime in the first half of this year, but for some reason my colleagues and clients have kept asking me exactly when we would see a real ARM server running a real OS. How about now?
The chipmaker has shrugged off competition from ARM in Windows 8, predicting that the OS will take one form for mobile devices and one form for desktop PCs
Over at The Register there's a piece about Windows 8 and how the ARM flavor of that OS won't run legacy apps. The same article also features the revelation that Windows 8 will feature a 'Windows 7 mode.' Just don't get too excited about it just yet!
Software maker has announced at CES 2011 that the next Windows will support SoC architectures and has demonstrated its OS running on both ARM and x86 processors.

RIM's Playbook, the "BlackBerry Tablet", is one of the most anticipated devices of 2011. Announced at RIM's developer event last September, it's a dual core ARM device with a 7" screen, running the QNX micro-kernel real-time OS.
Microsoft and ARM announced on July 23 that the two have signed a new licensing agreement for the ARM architecture, extending the relationship between the two companies. The pair aren't sharing any details, but I can't but wonder if this could signal Microsoftand its PC partners delivering Windows and/or Windows Phone OS available on ARM-based slates and tablets.
Asus has prototype Android and Chrome OS smartbooks in its labs and is currently deciding whether to release an ARM-based device alongside its Intel-based Eee PC netbooks
Google's Chrome OS, which generated an extreme amount of hubbub, is a defensive move as much as it is an offensive one, say analysts. Nevertheless, Google's move will have a wide impact on the industry.
Rumors along these lines have been surfacing for years -- now Google has officially announced their intentions to create a computer operating system. The new operating system, called "Google Chrome OS" will run on both x86 and ARM processors -- which means it could technically work on anything from desktop computers to mobile devices.
Google officially announced yesterday night that they were developing an operating to run on x86 and ARM processors. The open source project is an extension of Chrome, hence the name Google Chrome Operating System and will initially target netbooks with product delivery set for the second half of next year; PC support for the Chrome OS will come later.
With demand likely to remain sluggish at least through the summer, Palm is counting on a beefed-up OS 5 to give the company a shot in the arm.
Symbian, which makes operating systems for wireless phones, on Wednesday announced that six new semiconductor companies will support its OS. Agilent Technologies, Epson, Parthus, Philips Semiconductors, Samsung and STMicroelectronics will join ARM, Intel, Motorola, Qualcomm and Texas Instruments in integrating the Symbian OS with their chips that use an ARM core, a technology that boosts chip performance. The move, announced at a conference in Cannes, France, is expected to reduce the time it takes to develop mobile phones and get them to market. Symbian's news follows similar announcements from Microsoft on Tuesday. Symbian is an independent company owned by Ericsson, Nokia, Matsushita, Motorola, Psion and Sony Ericsson. Ericsson, Nokia and Psion are already shipping devices using the Symbian OS. --Richard Shim, Special to ZDNet News
Now that the dust has settled on Macworld, which new products unveiled last week will have a lasting effect? Could iPhoto convince you to switch to OS X? Will the iMac's arm sag?
The handheld company will soon announce a deal with chipmakers to begin the transition of the Palm OS to processors with ARM technology.
