Homegrown mobile phone-maker Karbonn Mobiles is all set to launch dual-OS (operating system) devices, which will support both Android and Windows, by June.

The company has just signed the licence agreement with Microsoft to make Windows-based phones and will put this along with its existing Android system to bring out the dual-OS phones in about six months, the company's chairman Sudhir Hasija said.

I wonder what will happen if Google were to resort to the same illegal tactics that Microsoft used to force OEMs into not dual-booting BeOS back in the day.

In the end, I'm just filing this one under 'poetic justice'. Shoe's on the other foot now, Redmond.

For a developer I get it.

For a user I'm not sure it could serve as a way to decided which OS you prefer. I tend to prefer some OS, but another OS tends to have stuff I'd like to have in my preferred OS.

For the average user it may be better not to know what they're missing if they opt for some OS.
