LXer: MS Announces Support for Intel, AMD, and ARM SoC's for Next Windows


Published at LXer:

LAS VEGAS — Jan. 5, 2011 — Microsoft Corp. today announced at 2011 International CES that the next version of Windows will support System on a Chip (SoC) architectures, including ARM-based systems from partners NVIDIA Corp., Qualcomm Inc. and Texas Instruments Inc. On the x86 architecture, Intel Corporation and AMD continue their work on low-power SoC designs that fully support Windows, including support for native x86 applications. SoC architectures will fuel significant innovation across the hardware spectrum when coupled with the depth and breadth of the Windows platform.[For those of you asking what this has to do with open source: Most times ARM prototype SoC's are developed using Linux, like currently at NuFront (MS-partner), TI (think BeagleBord) and FreeScale. Only _after_ these prototypes run on Linux, they're going to receive Windows compatibility, meaning Windows will be some kind of 'afterthought' for some time. Of course, we don't know how long MS has been developing for ARM, but I'm pretty sure they're behind in ARM SoC support compared to Linux - also thanks to the Linaro initiative. And if not, at least we'll see a level playing field in which hardware doesn't work better with Windows than with Linux! - hkwint]

Well, so what?

Linux is better regardless, and Linux is still superior to Windows hands down. Just because Microsoft may be more familiar to users does *not* mean it's better.

[Mod Edit Note:]Font abuse is rife in our society. Poor fonts are taken from their natural sizes and forced into a degrading life of largeness. Stop font abuse today!

Whoa, Kenny, cool down...no need to waste page space with the huge type! No offense, but you really are coming off as a zealot...

It's ok. The font is now calmer and happier.

I am somewhat confused where the large text from that bot is actually from. It is not part of the original text.

Sorry Mr. Code and XavierP: When I posted that large text I was merely mocking the bot.

Or at least mocking the fact that the bot (or maybe the RSS feed that it syndicates from) posted large text here.

I was going to post: "Kenny is a bot-mocker!", but I might receive an infraction for a personal attack. So I won't...
