Just don’t expect most things to work on windows for arm at the moment
That's the thing. Not desperate. Been using Chromebooks with a remote access (for whenever needed, not that often) to a Windows server.
Works ok but not recommended if you are intending to use for any serious work. Windows 10 for arm is still a technical preview and you need to be part of windows insider program. You are emulating x64 within virtualisation. https://9to5mac.com/2020/12/22/run-windows-10-arm-m1-mac-apple-silicon-x64-x86-no-boot-camp-video/ If you are that desperate to run windows, why not just get a pc?
Parallels to run linux?
