Qualcomm, Microsoft ; Win 10 on Arm iNews
« on: May 10, 2018, 11:36:46 AM »
 Is it news? The full title is:
Qualcomm, Microsoft drag apps for Win-10-on-Arm into 64-bit world
Link:
https://www.theregister.co.uk/2018/05/09/qualcomm_microsoft_drag_arm_win10_apps_into_64bit_world/
It says, in part:
In particular, Qualcomm said in its version of the release, “ARM64 allows developers to address a larger amount of memory than with 32-bit processors and take full advantage of Snapdragon capabilities.”
Because it's a preview release, Microsoft doesn't offer official support for Arm64 apps, and developers can't yet submit the packages to the Windows Store: developers will have to get the word out to users through their own channels.

Why am I no amazed ?   :P

Windows 10 on ARM is a scheme for running (some) Win32 apps on ARM hardware using an x86 emulator. It is supposed to allow running a core set of basic Win32 apps at glacial speed on an expensive ARM powered laptop* with very impressive battery life (20 hours or more). This development does NOT mean this will extend to running 64 bit Windows apps. It's slow. People have reported that the experience is not encouraging even for web browsing and word processing.

Patio, I posted it in Other.
The link is from The Register,  rag based in the UK, I think.
They claim to be "Tech and science news for IT professionals and fans."
