There may not be four versions of Windows 8 for ARM system-on-a-chip processors that are incapable of running legacy Windows apps after all. Microsoft has rebutted recent statements about Windows 8 running on ARM processors made by Intel's senior vice president and general manager of its software and services group.

Intel's Renee James recently suggested that there would be at least four versions of Windows 8 for the ARM chip architecture. She also said these versions of Windows 8 would not be compatible with older Windows programs written for Windows 7, Vista and XP.

Well when it comes out I might try it but I would upgrade to Windows 7 before I ever buy Windows 8, because if most of the programs for Windows 8 need to be in compatible mode (my opinion it sucks). So at the moment I will stick with XP then upgrade to 7.

Microsoft is more into whatever makes them money. They know they can't make money if they don't incorporate some kind of backwards comparability.
