    Question Windows 8 beta anyone?

    I Know i brung up a similar issue in a previous post about dual booting with windows 7, but i was jus wondering now that the windows 8 beta is officially out and compatible with the ARM processors in our thrives, has/will anyone venture out to attempt to dual boot both Honeycomb & Windows 8?

    not gonna happen.
    1. not even available in beta for ARM.
    2. no ARM drivers for windows (think how complex it already is on windows, and you count windows development here, by companies only)
    3. general support from microsoft on non-certified devices.

    compare this to Winphone7 not being available on HTC Desire or other HTC devices.. only HTC HD2 managed to get it all, since someone found this device the same as another htc device sold. otherwise you do not see winphone7 on non-certified device, so it will not happen.
    and note, winphone7 IS ARM based, so use this to compare why its not out for all mobiles now money,licenses and developer support
