Todd Bishop is also saying that Microsoft will demo Windows 8 tomorrow – on an ARM processor

A demonstration of Windows running on ARM processors this week will double as the first public preview of Windows 8, the next major version of the operating system, and offer a glimpse of the new allies enlisted by Microsoft in a market defined thus far by Apple’s iPad.
Sources familiar with Microsoft’s plans confirm that the company tomorrow will show Windows running on the ARM architecture common in mobile devices and slate-style computers — a landmark move intended to make the traditional PC operating system work on a broader array of machines.
Windows 8, it turns out, is the version that will introduce that capability. And Microsoft has lined up chip makers Nvidia, Qualcomm and Texas Instruments to make ARM processors for Windows 8 systems.

This is getting interesting…
