    Windows 8 is supposed to be utilizing to ARM architecture along with x86. Also, think about the new tegra 2 250 devices that run an arm cpu. Does anyone think it possible? Just imagining dual booting windows and android on a Moto xoom makes my mouth water.

    I'd love to see an option like that on future tablets. The ability to use android as like a fast boot OS and then use Windows 8 for other things.

    I wouldn't need to get a new laptop :)

    Android is an OS, you don't "port" one OS to another... you'd have to port Windows 8 to run on each individual hardware phone device... sounds like a lot of enthusiast driver work, and windows driver work at that... not happening.
