  1. I’m a bit confused about what was said about ARM Windows 10S. According to MSFT FAQ page about Win10S (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4020089/windows-10-s-faq) “Windows 10 S works exclusively with compatible apps from the Microsoft Store. The vast majority of apps available in the Microsoft Store will work on Windows 10 S the same way they will work on Windows 10 Pro and Windows 10 Home. ”
    is that what you were saying with “They run Windows 10 S which uses an emulator to run 32-bit Windows apps” ??

    1. From the link we had in the show notes – https://www.theverge.com/2017/12/5/16737288/microsoft-windows-10-qualcomm-arm-laptops-launch

      “HP and Asus’ devices will include Windows 10 S, designed to only run apps from the Windows Store, but users will be able to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro free of charge (for now) to get access to the full desktop apps. Microsoft has natively compiled Windows 10 to run on ARM chipsets, so all Windows processes, Edge, and the shell all run natively without emulation. Microsoft has also looked at the top third-party desktop applications and natively recompiled a set of system DLLs that they rely on to ensure performance is solid.

      Microsoft’s emulation work does mean that you’ll be able to download most 32-bit exe files from the web and install them on ARM-powered laptops. ”

      The emulation is needed for apps compiled to run on an x86 chip to be able to run on ARM.
