Lots of supposed PC fans are moaning about Windows 10 on ARM. While a Snapdragon-based PC may not be for you (which is totally fine) real PC users should want Qualcomm, and Intel, and AMD do succeed as we all will benefit.

I think people misunderstand Windows on ARM. Programs only perform badly because they are emulated, but programs can be compiled to run natively with full performance on arm cpus.You can already get VLC for arm64, and Qualcomm are currently porting Chromium.You can download VLC for windows on arm here (press the down arrow next to 'Download VLC'), it obviously wont work on computers with x86 processors:https://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-windows.html

is better microsoft will create a phone like a blackberry keyone with pen support and LTE. cause of the people use facebook, messenger , skype. etc...
I don't hate ARM per se. What I do dislike is two things:- in their current state they are usually hilariously overpriced. If they had an Apple logo on them Windows fans would be calling them out for the Apple tax, and rightly so. I do the same for Qualcomm-powered devices.- I dislike how the Qualcomm devices are instantly more walled garden devices than their Intel devices. You have an app that for some reason Microsoft dislikes or finds politically incorrect to allow into their walled garden? Tough luck, it's not running. I do not trust ANY corporation to control MY device. Period.
Remember you're a hater of something works like shit 👍
I'm a PC and Windows on ARM was my idea!!!!!!
You should let ARM succeed so Intel and AMD have new competitor to look out for.. and at the end of the day tighter competition will mostly benefit end users..
Why doesn't this channel have way more subs...I get that alot of people hate MS but this channel is not bias regardless the name.The ARM hardware platform gives Windows on ARM a few advantages. ARM CPUs use less power, so you should get longer battery life. They offer true “instant on” resuming so you can immediately wake up the PC and resume where you left off, like waking your phone. They run silently with no fans. And they include cellular connectivity, so you can add one of these devices to your cell phone plan—AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon all support these devices in the USA—and have Internet access everywhere. (Or everywhere you have cellular connectivity, at least.)All three first-generation Windows on ARM devices use a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, which is the same processor used in the Samsung Galaxy S8, Samsung Galaxy Note 8, Google Pixel 2, Google Pixel XL, and many other 2017-era Android smartphones. New phones like the Samsung Galaxy S9 are already shipping with faster ARM CPUs. This is also why they’re being called “Windows on Snapdragon” devices.
Yes you are all wrong and Dan is right... Like he was right with the Surface Phone coming out "next year" since 2013. Like he was right with Hololense and Mixed Reality being a big hit. Like he was right with Groove to be an awesome music app service that will stay. Like he is actually being right with the Andromeda device and AndromedaOS. He is right and you fools are wrong ! Deal with it !
Maybe in the future it can be good. But if it is slow now, it is slow. If you're paying anything more then a couple hundred dollars, I want something fast, not slow.But these ARM laptop are costing around $1,000.ARM is good on phone, but laptops, they're are just slow.
Windows 10 on ARM is Great... 🤘
So if we don't love windows on arm we are pc haters ......... most of the classic software are built up for x86 , so that reduces backward compatibility , also arm will cause fragmentation of the pc market as optimising for 2 architectures will not be easy. I just think windows central is extremely biased for arm support for some unknown reason which actually distorts the truth giving an extremely false picture , arm is practically unusable now and yet windows central calls all arm based releases as great devices .............. THEY ARE NOT GREAT DEVICES , PLZ PRAISE THEM WHEN THEY ARE PRAISE WORTHY .
Wow there are really nerds hating on ARM?
Has anyone tested Xbox One streaming to the Windows 10 Xbox app on ARM?
Don't forget the Annipura chip.
as long as there are not good tools and frameworks to build like we have for x86 we cant talk about Qualcomm but of course they are welcome.
Thanks Dan for clearing this up
Great answer, I agree with you
Windows 10S with ARM chips is a perfect combination.I dont see any reason to run these CPU's on OS's that are not Chrome or 10S unless you wish to get bad performence
Mainstream Linux distros did this year's ago.I'm still excited for Qualcomm PC's.
