    I think a few people have discussed having linux on the tab though it hasn't really been much of a discussion for it... you know... being android forums and all...

    Though I'd be interested in being able to run Windows XP on it....

    yes, it would be nice to have windows os over on the tablet; however the problems starts with the drivers to run all the functions, these are android (some type of Linux), where will you get the correspond drivers for the tablet to manage a windows os inside of it?

    suppose would have to start by seeing what windows recognizes... then start tracking down the hardware components and see if there are any windows drivers... barring that, see if anyone would be willing to write the drivers...

    One of the Disgo 6000 users provided one of the Windows CE files but there's more to it. See this thread for general information regarding Windows CE on another InfoTMIC tablet.

    Thanks CFR!

    Lorenii, was looking that over, how functional is it for installing 'normal' windows applications? Specifically, have you tried running any games (MMO) on it?

    I really havent tried to run a game on it. The video card on the laptop is so old, I figured it wouldnt be much fun, graphics-wise.. Right now I use it as a wireless server for my security cameras and it runs 24/7 with no hitches.

    Also, the same computer is running on a CF/Microdrive vs. a standard harddrive and is very quick. This is the same type of "harddrive" that I suspect is inside of a 10MT tablet, due to the same whirring noise that it makes at boot. Too bad you can't open a 10MT, because I have a 6gig microdrive sitting here waiting for it.

    edit*** I have not run into ANY trouble with running any windows programs on it.
