Re: Stop me if this sounds familiar...

MS has a history of "supporting" non-x86 CPUs then burning its customers (Alpha, MIPS, PowerPC, Itanium, ARM) so I would be suspicious.

Having said that, this time round the chip should have native x68 support for traditional windows software. Remains to be seen just how compatible that turns out to be, of course...
