I think what Microsoft gets out of it is a lot of people starting to use Windows/ARM, which lends credibility to the platform and increases its userbase which makes it more likely developers port which makes it more likely it will get more users. What Microsoft will need to take the next step beyond Apple lending support is hardware to run it that doesn't suck but isn't sold at Appl prices. Maybe Qualcomm will bail them out there.

Microsoft recently said that Wow64 would be able to handle x64 applications soon. Intel patents wouldn't have affected x64 support, since AMD created that ISA not Intel (and AMD64 patents probably expire this year since AMD64 came out in 2003 and patents had a 17 year term then)

Maybe Microsoft assumed software that was new enough to have been built for 64 bits should be easier to port?
