Microsoft to Make a Few Versions of New Windows, Intel Says

Microsoft Corp. will make multiple versions of its next Windows operating system, with four that work on ARM Holdings Plc technology, according to an Intel Corp. executive.

The version designed for Intel chips will run older Windows programs, Renee James, head of Intel’s software business, said today in a presentation at the company’s Santa Clara, California, headquarters. The ARM versions won’t run older programs, she said. They will be tailored to mobile devices and tablet computers and there will also be a version for Intel chips to address that market.
