      I’m stuck somewhere between thinking maybe this can work and having absolutely no hope for the product.  We’ve already had WaRT which was both a commercial failure and just a terrible idea to begin with.  Then we have the transition from Windows Mobile into Windows Phone which lasted around 5 years?  Microsoft doesn’t seem to know how to make ARM work.

      What they need is a Chromebook, and more than that they need a Chromebook that can run .Net.  Without that very specific integration it won’t work.  The only thing that makes me think that they’ve learned is their latest Windows 10 IoT and UWP push.  Haven’t used it, but if the insides are as its marked on the tin, they do have a core version of Win10 that can run on ARM, and should have some basic compatibility with Intel.
