New application model in Windows 8

The new tile-based interface is slated to appear similar to what is currently available on Windows Phone 7 and will only be available on tablet like devices. Jupiter is not a replacement, but an alternative to ARM.

Codenamed "Jupiter", Windows NT everywhere, Silverlight/.Net everywhere!
