Microsoft has just confirmed that the next major revision of Windows, what we'll call Windows 8 for now, will include ARM support

Microsoft announced that the next version of Windows will support System on a Chip (SoC) architectures including ARM-based systems from partners NVIDIA, Qualcomm and Texas Instruments.

So now it will be possible

If Windows Phone 8 is an improvment over WP7 just like Windows 7 was with Vista
Then I'd say yes!!!

Eg: Window 7 runs good on my netbook where's Vista hogs like crap!

By the time Windows 8 rolls out, we will probably be up to quad-core Cortex-A15 processors. Which sound much better suited for running Windows 8.

Will be nice to see a Windows 8 Build on the HD2... but the leaked Win8 versions are not the ARM version yet!
