   1. It will hurt its close partner, Intel Corp.
   2. Technical difficulties.
   3. Microsoft already has an OS -- several, in fact -- that run on ARM.

   . . . Castellano agreed. ARM netbooks won't become popular for at least
   several years, giving Microsoft time to retool Windows Mobile and make it
   work well on netbooks.

Notice how they never mention the Windows applications that would have to be
ported to ARM?  Would a user be satisfied with the current Windows Mobile

You haven#t exposed any troll lies. All you have done is appear to be a
complete dickhead time and time again.
