Windows slithers on to Arm, legless?

Windows on ARMComment Perhaps more by accident or design, Microsoft managed to lower expectations for Windows on Arm last week – but not set them so low it kills off interest in the platform.

In fact, the "redacted" advisory about limitations of Windows confirms what we already know – hairy hacks won't work, nor will various plugins that hook into Windows, but almost everything else reasonable will.

That's a lot more promising than Microsoft's previous encounter with putting Windows on Arm chips, RT. RT was a calamity, and the memory haunts the company, like the Suez fiasco haunts British foreign policy. Don't go there. Best not even mention what we tried to do. Suez, did you say? Never heard of it. Is it a fish?
