Google is the force behind a potential delay in the first tablet to instantly switch between Windows 8.1 and Android 4.X using Intel technology, a fresh report from Asia says. A CNET source backs up this claim.

The original source is DigiTimes, so some salt may be required, but sources confirmed it to Cnet. There's no detail on exactly which steps Google has actually taken, but it's clear this reeks quite strongly of the same illegal and despicable acts Microsoft committed 15 years ago to pressure OEMs into not shipping BeOS.

I've been trying to get a nice Triple-boot going on my HP Touchsmart TX2-1025. I just about have it all working. Windows 8.1, Android-x86 4.4-RC1 and Tanglu (which is a Debian based distribution with newest Gnome/KDE, based on Testing).

Literally the only thing I've found in testing Android on it that doesn't work (granted it's a big one) is the touch screen, which seems like I should be able to fix it with modifying the defconfig file and building a new ISO.

Wouldn't it be kind of cool for an OEM to start selling triple boot systems. Hell, they could even do a triple boot with Windows 8.x, 7 and Android. Now if I could only add Sailfish to my Touchsmart as well... ;)

I reboot my system once a month. For anything like testing things, playing with setups and stuff, I virtualize it using kvm:)

dual boot is so 1995 :p
