    Will there be a separate section for Windows 8 tablets in tabletroms?

    Well, here I am with 5 minutes of nothing to do and what do I think of? Windows 8 tablets. As the title says, will there be a separate section for Windows 8 tablets in tabletroms?

    I know I will be posting on the developer section of Windows 8 Tablets. But, what about ROMs? Windows 8 will be a fairly closed source OS. Will we see any ROMs as such for Windows 8 tablets?


    Here are my thoughts.
    1. First and foremost Windows 8 tablets will be closed source - period.
    2. Being closed source means it will be one hell of a job if anybody can make a ROM out of it (you know - with pre-installed apps)
    3. So, there will be no separate section for Windows 8 Tablets and not much ROMs available (I do expect a few).

    Not sure if there will be such things as roms when it comes to windows tablets and because it's Microsoft we will be limited on what can be legally distributed.
    I think we should start getting into them though. Tips, Tricks, Registry Hacks, etc.

    Tips, Tricks, Hacks, App Dev - I can do them... ROM's not sure how to go forward with it, as you said, without running into legal issues.
