Recently, ARM-based processors have attracted widespread attention, and the company is now proposing ARM-supported versions of its operating systems and applications.
As Apple transitions from Intel to its own Apple Silicon, we hope to see extensive development of ARM-based Windows 10 in the near future.
However, there are already some devices on the market that can run Windows 10 on ARM. Taking advantage of this, Adobe recently released a beta version of the Windows version of Photoshop on ARM devices.
Now, a user who use “imbushuo” on Twitter have managed to run the Photoshop application on Microsoft’s Lumia smartphone.
However, it is worth noting that the device is running a modified version of Windows 10 on the ARM operating system. Although Microsoft has abandoned its Lumia smartphones, users are still patching older models.
Earlier this year, a group of developers managed to port the complete Windows 10 operating system on Lumia 950 and 950 XL smartphones.
The developers also managed to add Continuum support and a custom phone dialer application to Lumia smartphones running the Windows operating system.
They can even detect the SIM card on the device. We don’t think the Photoshop application will run properly on an improved smartphone with a history of about 5 years, but it’s interesting to see that developers have made such progress, which has promoted the development of the Windows on ARM project.
