    Because if it worked well, it would be great!

    A fully functioning Windows or OSX setup would be excellent in tablet form. But both Windows and OSX need quite a bit of fine tuning to their touch interface before it would be any good.

    So no, you cant currently do it.

    Let's talk about an Android port to iPad. Anyone have any info on it? Or maybe a Chrome Tablet port?

    i visited the Microsoft store last weekend and played with a tablet running Windows 7. I accidentally touched the screen for a moment too long and manage to remove a program icon from the Start menu and drag it to the desktop.

    I've been using Windows since version 2.11 so it's not like I'm a fumbled fingered noob with Windows. The interface isn't designed for a touch interface, and OSX isn't much better.

    I find that the Jump Desktop interface makes using Windows apps practical with a touch screen, but it's not as smooth as using an OS designed from the ground up for multitouch.
