    Hello,

    I have been searching around the net and have only been able to find stuff about remotely accessing your computer via the Ipad. My question is, can you hack and run either Windows or Mac OS on the Ipad independently? I have been told that you must rewrite the software code? Please help explain/tell me how...Thanks

    No, you can't.

    The hardware is completely different. There have been a couple reported cases Android and even Linux on iPads, but neither worked worth a darn, and the process isn't end user friendly. Windows and OS X are even less portable and do not have mobile processor versions. And even if you could compile mobile versions it would be like trying to shove an elephant into a gerbil's cage.
