It was reported that ARM chips will be brought in by Microsoft Windows 10. In line with that a new job listing was posted on Microsoft Careers, confirming bringing Windows to ARM chips. According to the job listing, Microsoft is planning to bring support for ARM64 chips to all device categories with Redstone.
The job listing states:
Do you want to help usher in a new era of devices customers are passionate about and clamoring to have? Are you passionate about creating the operating system foundation to enable breathtaking experiences?
The silicon ecosystem is always evolving. Windows across all device categories is readying for the introduction of 64 bit computing with the ARM instruction set (ISA). Bringing a new ISA to market involves working both broadly and deeply across Microsoft from devdiv to WDG to Server to Office and others depending on the scope of product target. Many hard system problems need to be discovered and solved to be successful. The role also requires deep engagements in the silicon ecosystem too.
For those interested, Microsoft is hiring a Senior Program Manager whose responsibilities will include:
Building the plan for ARM64 aligned with the Redstone wave
Identify the “big rocks” we need to move, solve, make it happen
Build the all up view of where we are, drive the schedule
Work to ensure the necessary hardware is planned for and delivered on time
Drive performance and compatibility goals, define and drive to key metrics
It would definitely be a big shoe to fill and implement. If Microsoft manages to bring support for ARM chips to all device categories, Windows 10 will be even more powerful. It might also bring back some hope for Windows 10 Mobile.
