If Windows 10 is coming to Windows phone 8 devices, and some of those are 512mb ram devices, then wouldn't Windows 10 for PC have support for older computers?
I knew something like that would surface. Due to display and multitasking, it would need 1 GB of ram.
Wrong Windows 10 x86 programs and apps are different beasts, the OS is the same.
Ehm..... you've got this backward.
Universal apps for W10-arm and W10-x86 can be 100% identical, meaning the entire source code base and the binary distributable too, as it will often be just CPU independent IL code.
Moreover, W10-arm and W10-x86 are not functionally identical. One is a very small subset of the other, which IMHO is anything but "the same". You might as well say the numbers 123 and 2 are the same, because they both include the number 2.
It's the same OS as far as the consumer is concerned, it is Windows 10, that is all. We could argue this all day, not gonna.
