    The problem with both Windows and the various non-android distros of Linux is that they really don't work very well for small screens with only touch input. I haven't figured out the perfect size tablet for me yet, but it's somewhere around the size of my S7 (except in a 4:3 aspect ratio). Win 7 barely works with touch on my TM2 laptop, I cannot imagine it on a tablet. Another non-Android Linux distro may be the answer; however it might need something besides X windows since I haven't seen an X windows based gui that would really work for small and medium form factor tablets.

    Yeah, I know Android is Linux-based, but I had a more full distro in mind...something put together with these devices in mind.

    If it ain't broke, mess with it until it is.

    Rumor has it that Apple is working on an OSx tablet, which is basically a highly optimisef version of xwindows running over a version of bsdunix as I undwrstand it, but Apple seems to have made it clear the iPad has the smallest size screen that it considers useful for a tablet, and an OSx tablet will likely have a considerably larger screen than that.
    It will be interesting to see where webos goes and what kind of interest there is from other compamies in licenaing it.

    Good to see you guys have been chiming in on the topic. I enjoy seeing other's with some interest and smarts on the topic put in there points of view. I was going to start a new thread to post this article I just found, but it pairs with this thread to well to do that. This article pretty much points out my whole point. Do locked in markets help or hinder the market??

    The next OS battle: Windows vs iOS vs Android | News | TechRadar UK

    This one quote from the article reaffirms my point and pretty much says it all..

    "Locked in:
    Firms don't just want to sell you a single bit of kit any more. They want to sell you an ecosystem - and the more bits of the ecosystem you invest in, the more difficult it is for you to jump ship."

    Good article enjoy!

    Yours through the screen
