Microsoft Antitrust Finding Specific to Windows on Intel?

Hal Berenson, retired engineer and general manager from Microsoft, back in February:

Microsoft can get away with Office as the only non-Metro app on ARM because the anti-trust finding was specific to Windows on Intel.

I’m no lawyer, but a quick perusal of the Department of Justice’s 1999 Findings of Fact (PDF) has me nodding my head in agreement. I count 36 instances of “Intel-compatible PC operating systems”.
