I hate to burst your bubble but RISC processors are very different to the x86 ones we're used to as desktop systems:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RISC

Specifically read the section entitled "RISC and x86".

EDIT: In short, programs written and compiled for x86 (everything you've ever run - unless you're in software development and have dealt with Solaris SPARC or similar) do not work on RISC processors. It's possible that if they're written in C/C++ you could compile them for RISC but first someone is going to have to compile/produce a version of Windows for RISC first.

Another interesting article:

http://cse.stanford.edu/class/sophom...risc/risccisc/

Which mentions "Windows NT was RISC compatible", which might mean XP is.. hmm.
