Neither will Mac OS or applications.

I also believe MS has ported or is porting Windows 7 to ARM, that'd be silly not to counterattack Intel and its sudden Linux love. And they have experience with ARM chips.CyruzDraxs said:Also; Microsoft could very easily put their VirtualPC team to work making an integrated binary translation system much like Apple did when they switched to Intel. Infact; they had a job posted about a year ago seeking several binary translation engineers--most likely to add to the VirtualPC team, but I'm sure they are up to something. Microsoft does ALOT of R&D and I'd say it's pretty much certain they already have a mostly functional ARM port of Windows 7 with binary translation, they are just deciding whether or not they should release it--it would demand some degree of expanded tech support after all, and no tech company likes to sink more money in tech support unless they really have to.
