Windows 8 desktop apps to run on ARM devices, too

Desktop apps that are designed to run on Windows 8 computers with x86/x64 processors will also be capable of running on ARM processors, ZDNet reported on Tuesday. Developers will need to recompile applications so that they run properly and Microsoft is hoping that a majority of developers create both desktop and ARM versions of their applications.

Microsoft has not yet said whether or not its Windows 8 application store will be populated with both Metro style applications and desktop apps.
