  • apps from Microsoft

      These are "apps from Microsoft" ... not necessarily Office. Note that Office 15 doesn't include Outlook!
  • desktop versions
  • WOA supports the Windows desktop experience including File Explorer, Internet Explorer 10 for the desktop, and most other intrinsic Windows desktop features
    • Joel Bennett
      I can't decide if this is a goot thing or not. It seems like it supports the Windows desktop BUT NOT 3rd party desktop apps -- is this just because they couldn't get around to rewriting all the utility apps in Metro style (and recompiling was easier), or because they actually want to support deskop apps?
  • ...3 more annotations...
  • integrated, end-to-end products—hardware, firmware and WOA software
  • Partners will provide WOA PCs as integrated, end-to-end products that include hardware, firmware, and Windows on ARM software

      Read this as: WOA devices are not user-serviceable, you won't be able to sideload apps, and you deffinitely shouldn't expect to be able to build your own from parts.
  • Within the Windows desktop, WOA includes desktop versions of the new Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote, codenamed “Office 15”. WOA will be a no-compromise product for people who want to have the full benefits of familiar Office productivity software and compatibility, an industry-leading hardware-accelerated web browser, apps from Microsoft, and access to apps in the Windows Store.

      "No compromise" ... that's certainly one spin on it.
    The definitive Windows On ARM post.
