For a while, there were concerns that Microsoft was planning to lock down Windows 8 tablets in the same way that it had locked down Windows RT tablets, which would have meant a locked bootloader and therefore no option to set up a dual-boot system.

I'd rather have Ubuntu, a tablet like this is not a kid's toy.

a tablet with a full windows OS is a kids toy. Ipads are kids toys.

I like OSX but on the surface what would be the point of throwing out all of that touch screen functionality?

Osx only good at magic mouse... I don't think it's compatible with full touchscreen... you might frustrated if download osx.... Ubuntu is better since it has so much gesture...

If it can run Linux it can run the x86 port of Android
