    No, you cannot run and install windows based programs.
    If it's important to you, you'll find a
    way. If not, you'll find an excuse.

    I love to confuse this issue for people... currently, no. Is it possible? Yes, with the right software, for example, on Linux and Mac there's a free program called wine which allows you to run windows programs with a relatively high degree of success. Seeing how android is just another computer and Linux based on top of that, there's no reason an app like wine couldn't be made for android. Again, however, at this time, no, it is not possible to install and use windows programs.

    If it is that important for you to run MS apps, why don't you look into a windows based tablet? Or something that can dual boot?

    There are 'doze-based tablets on the market now. Can't imagine why anybody in their right mind would want such a thing, but to each his or her own, I guess.

    The only other solution not mentioned yet is (if you own the ASUS Transformer tablet) to use ASUS's remote terminal app that allows users to control a Windows-based PC via the tablet. It can be used on both desktops and laptops, netbooks.

    Of course, this is not what the OP wants, but it is a function worth mentioning since you would think other tablet makers (barring Apple) would integrate functionality like this to help promote Android as a very open and compatible OS.

    i thought the market only has android based tablets now.
    i had that idea of window based tablets, is i want to replace tablet with laptop, and instead of buying laptop + tablet.
    since android tablets cant run lots of programs.
    Ipad or Androids or Blackberry.....
