Someone Put Windows 10 on ARM on Apple Silicon - The Results Won't Shock You!

AWS engineer puts Windows 10 on Arm on Apple Mac M1 – and it thrashes Surface Pro X

An Amazon Web Services (AWS) virtualization engineer has shown what Windows 10 on Arm could be like if Microsoft licensed its Arm-based OS to the public rather than just to Windows 10 manufacturers.


AWS principal engineer Alexander Graf did just that, using the open-source QEMU virtualization software for Windows on Arm. QEMU emulates access to hardware such as the CPU and GPU. Graf's work was spotted by The 8-bitvia 9to5Mac

"Who said Windows wouldn't run well on #AppleSilicon? It's pretty snappy here," Graf wrote in a tweet.  

Awkward! I'm betting Microsoft are not going to be pleased with Mr. Graf...
