Microsoft’s decision to transfer Windows on ARM processor architecture is buzzing around.  is the company’s decision really rationale ? Windows Division’s president–Steven Sinofsky– said that the company has decided to launch Windows on ARM at the same time as the commercial launch of Windows 8. The company has revealed that the devices are being tested from NVIDIA, Texas Instrument, and Qualcomm. As previously discussed, Windows on ARM is incompatible with X86/X64 processor architecture, will not support the applications which is currently running on the Windows7,Vista, XP, and more platform.

Windows 8 running on the X86/X64 processor architecture will support the applications of different windows versions including Windows 7, vista, XP, 98, 95, and so on. But, Windows on ARM will support only to Windows 8. Definitely, there’s huge anxiety among folks those who are currently working on Windows different platforms.

Windows Division’s president—Steven Sinofsky–said on Windows 8 blog, “Windows on ARM or WOA, WOA is a new member of the Windows family, much like windows server, windows Embedded, or Windows Phone. As with those products, WOA builds on the foundation of windows, has a very high degree of commonality and very significant shared code with windows 8, and will be developed for, sold, and supported as part of the largest computing ecosystem in the world. Today, we’ll focus on the development of WOA and introduced some of the features, along with how customers will experience it. As with X86/X64 windows 8, there are still announcement to be made relative to the business and Marketing aspects of the products(s).”

Apps for WOA will be available at Microsoft’s own Windows Store—Microsoft office and some other trusted program would be able to run on the traditional desktop environment in order to meet the productivity need.

The company has mentioned on its blog that WOA PC will not need to turn off after completion of work due to unavailability of traditional hibernate and sleep options. The WOA PC will always be operated on newly designed connected Standby power mode—as in mobile and Tablets, when screen goes dark, the user need to press the power button for accessibility. Beside this, there will be number of different features on WOA PC which are different than traditional one.

Microsoft has taken an unconventional approach to assert their rivals. However, Microsoft’s endeavor will definitely provide an incredible experience to users than traditional PC users. But, the number of application which is running on different Windows platform will not be supported by Windows on ARM. Only little number of selected apps will be available for Windows on ARM users. The company has not yet explained whether device running on ARM will be more costly than traditional devices. A big question is here that will Microsoft reimburse Windows’ loss in Q4 last year by implementing such strategy.
