Windows just simply keeps pushing forward with it’s devices. They have even announced that many of the newer devices will be running on ARM processors, which are currently more present within tablets and smartphones at the moment. All of this means that Windows is planning for more than just the near future in laptops and computer, but also a little further where this seemingly “tablet revolution” will be in full swing and we will all be using tablets. There is a slight disadvantage to the usage of ARM Processors which is the fact that they are not as powerful as normal computer processors, but they do perform tasks such as PowerPoint and even streaming HD video with relative ease. There will always arise the issue of backwards compatibility, with x86 software. This may be a problem at the current moment, so we will simply have to wait and see what Microsoft does about this.
