Windows 7 Wonât Support ARM Processors Anytime Soon [Microsoft Still Plays Ball with Intel, Forgets About ARM CPUs]

,----[ Quote ]
| Whatâs interesting is that ARM processors 
| are already used extensively in consumer 
| electronics, and that includes PDAs, mobile 
| phones, digital media, music players, and 
| many more other, but still not getting any 
| Microsoft love right now, which could be 
| because the company is more focused on 
| desktop computers, laptops and netbooks as 
| their main market.


Is Microsoft Trying to Kill the Netbook Market?

| Itâs no secret the disdain Steve Ballmer and 
| Michael Dell have publicly expressed for 
| netbooks. Both companies make more money 
| from bigger iron running bigger versions of 
| Windows.

| 61% of consumers intending to buy a netbook 
| computer were not aware of limitations in 
| Windows 7 Starter Edition. When Retrevo 
| pointed out the differences 56% of those 
| respondents said they would not be satisfied

Five Linux alternatives to Windows 7

,----[ Quote ]
| Fedora
| Fedora is Red Hat's community Linux
| distribution and it's a winner. That said,
| it's a cutting edge distribution. You'll
| find new features in the forthcoming Fedora
| 12, like kernel memory management via KSM
| KSM (kernel samepage merging) that are may
| be a little too bleeding edge for some
| users. I like Fedora, but its target
| audience is Linux experts, not Linux
| newcomers.
