ZDnetがTerry Myerson氏に単独インタビュー。Windowsの未来について語る


MicrosoftウォッチャーMary Jo Foley氏がMicrosoftのOS部門責任者・Terry Myerson氏に単独インタビューを行い、ZDnetに掲載されました。


その中で、Windows RTの未来についてMyerson氏が回答している部分がありましたので、ご紹介します。




Foley氏は、いきなりWindows RTの位置づけについて、直球の質問をぶつけます。


ZDNET: What about Windows RT -- not WinRT, the API (application programming interface) -- but Windows RT, the Windows flavor on ARM? Does that have a future?

MYERSON: Windows ARM processors have a future, and there's tremendous innovation in the ARM ecosystem. I think Intel has a fabulous future. There's tremendous innovation going on with Intel.

We want to take advantage of the innovations in ARM. I think ARM chipsets have a bright, vibrant future, and Windows will run on those chipsets.


Q「Windows RTには未来はありますか?」





続いて、将来のWindows RTとWindows Phoneの融合についての質問。


ZDNET: We've been hearing rumors about the Windows Phone OS and Windows RT somehow becoming a new OS that's different from Windows RT as it exists today. Is that the right way to think about it?

MYERSON: We will have great version of Windows on ARM. One thing we're working through is how do we really delight customers in all the form factors that will have ARM chips.








ゆっくりと、Surface 3とSurface Miniの登場を待ちたいところです。
