    But native ARM applications are going to be a must, X86 apps that use any serious power will definitely slow this platform down.
    Still, as it will run all Windows applications, it would be a nice bridge between ISA/devices.

    Windows itself will be native of course, as will all of its components and drivers, as well ass Microsofts own productivity SW, Internet SW and media SW. Speed in the video showing the emulated Photoshop session above in this thread is totally acceptable IMHO, and that test was conducted on an "old", existing ARM CPU. New CPU's come, and with Microsoft doing this move, opening the gates so to say, more CPU's aimed and taylored for real laptops (and maybe even desktops down the road?) will definitely follow.

    MorphOS is Amiga done right! :-)
    MorphOS NG will be AROS done right! :-)
