In reply to unicron
These development kits have not been confirmed but even the rumors admit they are running x86 emulation which would mean they don't represent final hardware.
The platform is to use the embedded version of XP (Possibly Longhorn) both are x86 native and for a 4 year platform they can't afford the perfomance hit emulation would create. .
