And then , it has high hardware requirements and
needs secure boot which both aren't available on the Pi.
Futhermore , it is designed for ARMv7 , not ARMv6 boards AFAIK.
Windows 8 RT will never make it onto the dead ARMv6 platform without the help of Microsoft engineers rebuilding the kernel, which isn't going to happen because it would potentially mean the NT 6.2 kernel would be floating around... As for Windows Embedded Compact, I would love to see a port!! Windows Embedded Compact 8 is coming out in Q1 2013 so perhaps then development could really kickstart. As for the comments about there being too many distributions, maybe back in early days but now we have a rock solid hard float rasbian release we can go and try to get some other kernels on the RPi, NT on the RPi would be awesome because NT pretty much powers the world (I know there are a lot of linux fanboys on here, don't get too upset). Is anyone working on any kind of port at the moment?
