Windows 7 will not support ARM-based PCs for the time being

Windows 7 logoWhile smartbook PCs based on ARM processors will be launched in 2010, Microsoft will continue with its strategic cooperation with Intel and will not have Windows 7 support smartbook PCs for the time being, according to Microsoft corporate vice president Mike Nash for Windows Platform Strategy during an interview with Digitimes.

And although some market watchers think that vendors of netbooks may consider adopting less expensive operating systems, the market response has shown that an increasing number of netbook users are willing to pay more for using Windows 7, Nash pointed out.

In addition, from Microsoft's point of view, the key point is that different devices need to show differentiation in terms of value of functionality, Nash indicated. Therefore, there is still room for matching Windows with smartbooks by using Windows CE, which supports ARM-based processors, Nash pointed out.
