You might be right, but it's a marketing pull for ARM anyway.

Since Windows performs poorly even on a high-horsepower arch like x86/x64, I'd expect it to perform even poorer on ARM... And with no legacy support, the last argument for one to stick with MS has gone. Windows on ARM will be merely a curiosity to sit on museum displays: "Look: it also boots on ARM! But does little of anything else useful or timely..."

According to microsoft There will be two versions of windows:one that runs only on x86/x64, fully support windows legacy Applications and api's and one for ARM but without good legacy support. So android/ios will have much better consumer ecosystem in 2014. And a license for windows for ARM will be priced(at the beginning) at $90-$100. My guess is that businesses will buy x86 tablets/laptops and consumers will prefer ARM tablets/laptops.

KB, agreed. It is about providing the consumer with choice. Then the best solution wins. Clearly some will need to see ARM's challenge (in terms of system announcements and specs) to believe it...just like the area that I am driving around energy efficient servers for the cloud. But both of these thrusts are real and have teeth. Fun times!

Not in many parts of the world. Despite all the talk, bandwidth is not sufficient even in some parts of the "developed" world.

Will both ARM and Intel will have same OS? Will it be Android?

Thought by 2014, everything would be on the cloud, not notebooks..

Wishful thinking by ARM. Intel already has a price & power competitive Medfield chip for smartphones on 32nm technology. In the notebook segment, about the best that ARM can do is compete in low-end "netbooks". By 2014, Intel will be in volume production at 14nm when ARM is still struggling at 28nm. Tiny 14nm chips will not only be higher performance than ARM, but cheaper and more power efficient as well. ARM will be gasping in Intel's wake as they pull away.
