  • Windows on ARMOne of the biggest pitfalls of running Windows 10 on a Snapdragon chip is the fact that Qualcomm’s ARM processors don’t support 64-bit applications. However, at Microsoft Build 2018, Qualcomm has announced it is releasing a 64-bit SDK for Windows on ARM.

  • Windows on ARMAbout a month ago, Microsoft announced that it would be releasing an ARM64 SDK at its Build 2018 developer conference. Today, the firm announced that the SDK is indeed available as part of the Visual Studio 15.8 preview.

  • Windows on ARMMicrosoft’s Windows 10 on ARM push has gained a lot of exposure since the late 2016 announcement, and the very first PCs have already been launched, but the software giant still has to deal with one major drawback: the lack of 64-bit apps.

  • Windows on ARMMicrosoft already offers Windows 10 IoT Core to install on a Raspberry Pi, but thanks to the recent launch of Windows 10 on ARM, one skilled developer managed to install the actual full version of the operating system on the single-board computer.

  • Windows on ARMMicrosoft published a blog post today confirming that developers can now offer ARM packages to the Windows 10 desktop device family. The company also noted that it's recently added the ability to offer an app to Surface Hub users, which runs a variant of the OS known as Windows 10 Team.

  • PuTTY for Windows RTMicrosoft announced last week that future Qualcomm ARM processors would be able to run the full version of Windows 10, showing a demo of Photoshop running on a Snapdragon 820 processor that’s already available on a number of devices out there.

  • Windows on ARMMicrosoft can be surprising at times. After ditching Windows RT, the software giant has announced that it is working with Qualcomm to bring ARM support to Windows 10. In practice, that means that we will see Snapdragon-powered machines running Microsoft's latest operating system which, and this is key, can run proper x86 software.

  • Windows on ARMSome of you might remember that, back in February, Microsoft promised there would be a free version of Windows 10 for Raspberry Pi 2 owners.

  • Windows on ARMBad news for Windows Phone users, as new info on the release of the next major update for Microsoft's mobile operating system has just emerged and things are not looking as good as we originally thought.

  • Windows on ARMNetwork Monitoring software such as Microsoft Network Monitor, WireShark etc are well known troubleshooting tools to collect and analyze what is being sent/ received over the Network. Fiddler is yet another useful utility to monitor HTTP requests and response. These tools work very well on the traditional Windows operating system with the x86 or x64 architecture.

  • ScummVM for Windows RTScummVM is a program which allows you to run certain classic graphical point-and-click adventure games, provided you already have their data files. The clever part about this: ScummVM just replaces the executables shipped with the games, allowing you to play them on systems for which they were never designed!

  • MongoDB for Windows RTMongoDB is a document database that provides high performance, high availability, and easy scalability.
     

  • Vim for Windows RTVim is a highly configurable text editor built to enable efficient text editing. It is an improved version of the vi editor distributed with most UNIX systems. Vim is often called a "programmer's editor," and so useful for programming that many consider it an entire IDE. It's not just for programmers, though. Vim is perfect for all kinds of text editing, from composing email to editing configuration files.

  • Node.js for Windows RTNode.js is a platform built on Chrome's JavaScript runtime for easily building fast, scalable network applications. Node.js uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient, perfect for data-intensive real-time applications that run across distributed devices.

  • Python for Windows RTPython is a programming language that lets you work more quickly and integrate your systems more effectively. You can learn to use Python and see almost immediate gains in productivity and lower maintenance costs.

  • SciTE for Windows RTSciTE is a SCIntilla based Text Editor. Originally built to demonstrate Scintilla, it has grown to be a generally useful editor with facilities for building and running programs. It is best used for jobs with simple configurations - I use it for building test and demonstration programs as well as SciTE and Scintilla, themselves.

  • Notepad++ for Windows RTNotepad++ is a free source code editor and Notepad replacement that supports several languages. Running in the MS Windows environment, its use is governed by GPL License. Based on the powerful editing component Scintilla, Notepad++ is written in C++ and uses pure Win32 API and STL which ensures a higher execution speed and smaller program size.

  • Windows on ARMOne of the things Windows RT users have found most frustrating is the inability to run traditional desktop apps on their shiny new(ish) device. Although it was never any secret that this would be the case, it's still something that many people were hoping would cease to be an issue thanks to the development community.

  • Windows on ARMOne of the main limitations of Windows RT is that most 32- and 64-bit applications aren't compatible. Therefore, if you are buying a Microsoft Surface and intend to install all your favorite Windows programs, then you're going to have a bad time. To remedy this issue, XDA Recognized Developer GoodDayToDie has begun an initiative to get some desktop apps compiled for RT users.

  • Windows on ARMJust recently, we learned about a way to run non-Windows Store apps on a Windows RT device via a circumvention method that requires tinkering with the portion of the RAM that instructs Windows RT on whether it should run unsigned code or signed code.
