Today there was a huge blog post by Steven Sinofsky talking about the development of Windows 8 running on ARM http://blogs.msdn.com/b/b8/archive/2012/02/09/building-windows-for-the-arm-processor-architecture.aspx?CommentPosted=true#commentmessage. But the blog post also goes on to say that it will avoid constructs such as “add-ins” to deliver on battery life and other promises of what WOA can do. What is strange about this is that Windows 8 on ARM has been previously demoed running flash in Internet Explorer… SO… Confused… I am… Will Windows 8 on ARM support browser plug-ins? I don’t know… but somewhere the code does exist.
