The effort to bring full Windows to old Windows Phones seems to be rolling along at a rather rapid pace, and the latest development should make the work a lot more relevant.

We have previously seen hackers install Windows 8 RT (a now dead operating system) on a Lumia 640 XL, but today we have a very much living operating system, the recently introduced Windows 10 on ARM, running on a more recent and more powerful handset, the Lumia 950.

The effort has of course been enabled by WPInternals, and according to Blaze_CW, has allowed him to install Windows 10.0.16299.15 for ARM on his handset.

It remains to be seen if anything useful will come of this, but I am sure many of our readers either have a Lumia 950 in a drawer somewhere or are still actively using one, and would love to have access to the full power of desktop Windows 10.

Keep an eye on the site for the latest developments in this exciting area.
