Microsoft details 'Windows on ARM' program

Tim Greene | Feb. 10, 2012
Microsoft is fencing off a piece of Windows 8 called Windows on ARM (WOA) that is designed specifically for deployment on devices with low-power ARM processors - such as tablets and that has capabilities customized to that environment.

The company will give out a limited number of WOA test PCS when it releases Windows 8 Consumer Preview Feb. 29. "These devices will be running the same branch of Windows 8 on x86/64 as we release broadly at that time. These are not samples or hints of forthcoming PCs, but tools for hardware and software engineers running WOA-specific hardware," the blog says.
