Windows And so the war on general computing continues. Were you looking forward to ARM laptops and maybe even desktops now that Windows 8 will also be released for ARM? I personally was, because I'd much rather have a thin, but fast and economical machine than a beastly Intel PC. Sadly, it turns out that all our fears regarding UEFI's Secure Boot feature were justified: Microsoft prohibits OEMs from allowing you to install anything other than Windows 8 on ARM devices (the Software Freedom Law Center has more).

If it's a Nexus then it's Android. If it's not a Nexus device, then it's XYZ Incorporated's child fork distribution based on Android OS. There are very few real Android devices contrary to the marketing propaganda.


Well, considering there are no 'Nexus' Android tablets, then I guess you could say that there are no Android tablets currently on the market.
