Windows As you all know, Windows 8 will be the first release of Windows NT which supports the ARM architecture. Microsoft hasn't been particularly forthcoming about this new Windows variant, but that's changing today. The company has posted a long and in-depth blog post about Windows 8 on ARM.

VM's to the rescue

With the power of these tablets, running a program like vmware would be feasible. This would solve the running linux, winxp, etc. issues. Then again, that would require someone to write a VM for the app store, and get it approved. My primary reason for wanting a tablet is to use inkscape, paint.net, mypaint and blender. Though these are probably going to be capacitive touch screens making decent stylus's unuseable. I wish someone would make a tablet for engineers/artists. In my mind a tablet should be a replacement for a pad of paper. You just scrawl out ideas and draw out diagrams quick, or do sketches.
