Submission + - Sinofsky Confirms Desktop for Windows 8 ARM Devices (

exomondo writes: Steven Sinofsky has set the record straight with regard to the desktop experience on ARM with Windows 8 in stating that it will indeed ship with desktop capabilities. Regarding Windows 8 on ARM (WOA) he says in a recent blog post on the Building Windows 8 site:

Using WOA “out of the box” will feel just like using Windows 8 on x86/64. You will sign in the same way. You will start and launch apps the same way. You will use the new Windows Store the same way. You will have access to the intrinsic capabilities of Windows, from the new Start screen and Metro style apps and Internet Explorer, to peripherals, and if you wish, the Windows desktop with tools like Windows File Explorer and desktop Internet Explorer.
