images/news/windows.jpgFrom Microsoft at CES 2011:

At CES 2011 in Las Vegas, we hosted a press conference announcing that the next version of Windows will support System on a Chip architectures from Intel, AMD, and ARM. We announced that the next version of Windows will support System on a Chip (SoC) architectures including ARM-based systems from partners NVIDIA, Qualcomm, and Texas Instruments. On the x86 architecture, Intel and AMD continue their work on low-power SoC designs that fully support Windows, including support for x86 applications. SoC architectures will fuel significant innovation across the hardware spectrum when coupled with the depth and breadth of the Windows platform. We are making this announcement now so that our ecosystem can start working together to enable the widest possible range of devices, from tablets on up, to ship with the next version of Windows. More detail about this exciting news is available in our press release and this Q&A with Windows & Windows Live president Steven Sinofsky.

That's really cool !

I heard that all Audi cars will be equipped with nVidia mobile superchips Tegra 2 running a special OS untill 2012. These chips support up to 1GB of DDR2/LPDDR2 and will be able to provide driving support, GPS, rich multimedia with Full-HD support and much more. The cars as we know are about to become obsolete...
