Shouldn't the title be "ABI Predicts ARM PCs Will Outsell Intel's by 2013", not "ABI Predicts ARM PCs Will Outself Intel's by 2013"?

I kinda doubt MS will add arm support to their desktop OS's anytime soon, just because of the relationship they have had with intel in the past and currently.  It would kinda be a slap in the face to intel from the biggest OS vendor...and intel already is at least somewhat into linux already (moblin is the most recent example, but they do some good kernel work too I guess sometimes, including power management stuff for linux).  I just don't think MS would want to risk losing the netbook market because they pissed off the leading x86 chip maker.  I could be wrong...just my feeling on it.

 7 is the basis for moblie 7, or so i understand, thus ARM teritiory, also 7 supports AMD, so if ARM becomes a big player on netbooks it only makes sense for MS to support it.
