Microsoft’s Windows 8 is probably the most radical overhaul of the OS since Windows 95 and one of the reasons why we say that is for the first time Windows will run on ARM architecture processors. Qualcomm is likely to be the biggest benefactor of this move and the smartphone chipset giant (it currently controls almost 80 percent of the smartphone market) knows how big an opportunity this would be to be able to power the world’s dominant PC OS. Qualcomm is now showing off what its Snapdragon chipsets can do on Windows 8. Their first demo, not surprisingly, is about Adobe Flash performance on Internet Explorer 10 – a hotly covered topic as Windows 8 does not support plugins on Internet Explorer in Metro UI mode (no plugins mean no Flash either). Note that this demo demonstrates Flash on Internet Explorer in the desktop mode, which will support plugins. Jump the break to watch the video.
