As you may recall, you can get full Windows 10 running on a
Windows Phone (Lumia 950 or 950 XL) if you still have one.
Windows 10 for ARM on phones is unstable and performance is
terrible when compared Snapdragon PCs, but it’s a fun project

Yesterday, Adobe published beta versions of Photoshop that run
natively on Windows 10 devices with ARM chipset. Developers
have now managed to install the full desktop version of
Photoshop on a Lumia 950 XL and it surprisingly works very well

advanced tools, such as healing brush and content-aware fill
functionality. However, there are plans to improve support for
Photoshop in Windows 10 for ARM and these improvements will
also make their way to Lumia phones.

Microsoft has already confirmed that ARM-based devices running
Windows 10 will have access to even more. Currently, Windows 10
on ARM supports 32-bit native ARM apps, 64-bit native ARM apps
and only 32-bit Intel (x86) apps can be emulated. After the
next feature update, it would be possible to run 64-bit Intel
