With virtualization does that mean it'll still run x86 programs?

Virtualization would not allow you to run a different processor instruction set so no. Microsoft has been shipping an ARM version for a long time now. This I would imagine is windows 11 ARM. All the same features and anything compiled for uwp or specifically with an arm compiled version will work. Running x86 compiled applications on ARM or vise versa would require emulation which is significantly slower.

x86 and x64 apps run on Windows 11 ARM through emulation, not virtualization.

Yes, I run my x86/x64 software on Windows on my M1 Pro / ARM MacBook Pro.
