    That seems the only sensible and serious way for Microsoft to save Win10 on mobile platform.

    With Intel more or less dropping their x86 chipsets for mobile devices, this makes sense for Microsoft. I'm curious to see how well it will perform and how limited it will be.

    What's with the moaning? It's sensible from a business pov and - if one doesn't use it anyway - why complain about others getting more stuff?

    It plays all my games. I don't blame M$, I blame every other dev/publisher.

    8/10 is horrible for me as it breaks compatibility with a lot of programs, 7 and under is what I use.
    I'd like to know why you hate it so much haha

    My Win10 runs and runs, no issues. Needs some tweaking for sure but at least you can do this. For instance, it only downloads updates'n stuff when I want it, not when Win wants it. :D

    I like the idea of an propper Emulator solution to bring more desktop programs onto the mobile devices. However, MS should have enough ressources for real ARM ports of all of their programs, which would be more efficient than the detour over emulation. So the CPU power is not wasted through emulation, which may be critical onto mobile devices.

    Emulation is about legacy software, about the ability to run any existing software. That can be the only selling point of Win10 mobile (as it's the main selling point of desktop Windows anyway).

    Well if Pyra would be able to run win10 some people might be happy, as they could possibly run some existing x86 software if that wasn't already possible with wine.

    While i haven't tried mustard in my cereal, I also feel i can do without Win10 on ARM.

    It didn't used to be. That's what I really hate, they ruined it.

    The updates is probably the thing I hate most about Windows 10, as I've always ALWAYS disabled it on older MS OS's as it basically never added anything new, just patches for exploits that I'll never encounter since I don't run malicious shit in the first place.

    I sometimes boot into win10, most of the time then is spend on updates/reboots. I don't mind they add features or fix things, but if you hardly use the OS it is annoying. Ubuntu has updates to, but you install them and mostly that's it.
    For windows on the phone I never noticed updates really, so that would be less annoying.

    Microsoft released a video of win10 running on ARM with x86 support:
