They killed off all the Windows version ported to other architectures and climbed in bed with Intel. 25 years later, Intel's chips are more bloated than the Windows OS. Heat and battery life make Intel a "don't bother" in the mobile world ... and ARM takes over.
So, it is now an INNOVATION to go back 25 years and port Windows to other architectures ?
Think of where we would be if Windows ran on everything the way LINUX has? We would have CPU's that were cutting edge and efficient coming out of INTEL and 25 years of INNOVATION brought on by true competition in the hardware arena.
The only reason MOBILE is exploding is because there was an OS ported to run on ARM chips ... the same kernel and OS that runs on everything from IBM Big Iron to Raspberry PI.
We didn't get that CHIP from INTEL and we didn't get the OS from MICROSOFT.
Playing CATCH UP is not INNOVATION.
