Windows 7: With Windows coming to ARM, what happens to Windows Embedded Compact?

With Microsoft acknowledging this week that it is bringing Windows to the lower-power, tablet/slate-friendly ARM processor, I — like a number of others — also am wondering what Microsoft’s longer-term plans are for Windows Compact Embedded.

I erroneously predicted last week that Microsoft might show and tell more about its Windows Embedded products at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). Instead, Embedded got no keynote or press conference love, though the Windows Embedded team did have a presence at the event and on the show floor.

Hi there
Actually the whole idea of running an OS on any type of hardware is great -- there is on. nothing wrong oin using a sort of "Meta Architecture" so the "pseudo code" will run on whatever the real hardware underneath is.

Companies like SAP with their ABAP/4 language were working on similar ideas -- any SAP consultants know that you can run an ABAP/4 application on almost any type of hardware -- the SAP kernel converts the "I-code" into the actual code for the real hardware the application is running on. It's one step better than running an "Interpreter".

Running Windows on an ARM type processor might yield a HUGE amount of benefits in mobile computing etc etc. The main difficulties of course will be in providing User Interfaces such as the GUI but the basic kernel should run just fine.
