    So is it safe to assume that all Nook operating systems will be shifted over to MS Windows 8 for ARM processors? The processor is OMAP from TI but that's just re-branded ARM with an integrated video processor.
    Or will MSFT take the Nook to Intel for a new processor?
    No doubt that MSFT wants to bolster their online store but how will they do it?
