    Windows OS on Droid?

    Anyone know if it would be possible to install Windows XP or the like on a Motorola Droid?

    That would be a kind of cool feature especially since our phones meet the requirements for an xp installation

    windows was made to run on x86 architecture and the Droid is based on ARM, so no.

    Why? That would be like putting a 4 cylinder engine in a Lamborghini.
    OG Droid w/ Pete's GPA16 w/ stock Kernel using auto OC script. (retired)

    LG G2X w/ rooted 2.3.3 leak.

    It's OK for your Droid to be different. Just be supportive and reassuring and it will do just fine. It's when you or other people point at it or mock it for being different is when its' feelings get hurt. Just show it unconditional love regardless of its' differences and it will in turn reciprocate that love and loyalty.

    You would need like 20 or 30 Droids, linked together in a huge Droid cloud, just to satisfy the memory requirements of Windows.
    If you could chop about 99% of the Windows OS off, you might could do it then...

    Since it's linux based you'd more likely see Mac ran here then Windows.

    Imagine that! Running an Apple product on the Droid.

    That's dirty. why would you want to do that!

    Now I wonder if it might be possible to put a real lite OS like Unbuntu Netbook Remix or something.

    Haha this is like asking if you can have a palm phone with the Android OS. Its just not going to happen lol. As others have stated in this thread, Putting Windows mobile on an Android device is like putting a 4cyl engine in a Lamborghini and cutting 3 spark plug wires. If you want Windows Mobile switch to a phone that comes with it. I guarantee you will be running back to android FAST.
