    I’d be surprised if Microsoft doesn’t provide a compatibility layer. I guess old VisualBasic, VisualFoxPro and Delphi applications would have problems otherwise…

    Well, they recompiled their Office suite to run under Windows8/ARM and for .NET applications they have a MSIL to ARM compiler …

    There seems to be no x86 support – simply because the ARM processor are not that powerful.

    Therefore you can not run your native x86 application under Windows 8/ARM
