Windows + Android = WindowsAndroid!
Right now, the WindowsAndroid program is not quite ready, and it seems it requires some geeky moves in order to get it working, but the developer promises that everything will be easily accessible for regular consumers once it's ready.
WindowsAndroid executes Android 4.0 using the Windows kernel, instead of the Linux one, which allows the mobile OS to perform smoothly since no emulation action is going on. The program should make it possible for every Android enthusiast to seamlessly run their favorite apps on their PC.
If you wish to give WindowsAndroid a try, you can download the program from the developer's website here. Note: If the link to the developer's website doesn't work for you, it's probably because of the "heavy load". It should be back up soon.

There is a trojan in the file...Just deep scanned it after it took so long to get downloaded

no there's not. kaspersky didn't detect anything. (kaspersky is most powerful antivirus i know for consumers...)
30. zazori08 posted on 29 Jan 2013, 02:35 0
nope i think the most powerful is Norton.
32. kartik4u98 posted on 29 Jan 2013, 09:23 0
yeah right..Norton is the most powerful but I think that Kaspersky is enough for Home users like me :)

You can't just install any App yet, there isn't even Play Store. This version if full of bugs.

and here comes the "put android on lumia 920 with this program" enthusiasts.

no, you would not do that....but Android ran on the last HTC windows superphone - I am sure Android can run on Win8, but it would be a dual boot.

if this thing work perfect in windows 8, than it only a matter of time that this program will work too in wp8, IMO

Unlikely, you can't run unsigned code on WP8 and there's UEFI which will block any non-MS code from being launched at startup.
20. freebee269 posted on 28 Jan 2013, 11:23 0
For example, you can now write native Windows 8 Desktops programs (formally known as Windows Store Apps) in HTML5/CSS if you want, which is an easy language to support multiple devices with, and the Windows Runtime manages all the code, optimises it, and translates it into a language that Windows understands.
21. yowanvista posted on 28 Jan 2013, 12:18 0
Yes, but porting Android to the WP8 environment is simply impossible due to the code signing process (which has nothing to do with programming languages btw). Unsigned code must be loaded into memory during startup itself but it's impossible with UEFI in WP8 devices.

just wondering, do you code apps for android and wp8? because if you do then you'd know it is not impossible. actually, it was easier to bring my app from android to wp8 than it was android to IOS.

It would be even better if they ported it for Windows RT

Cool idea....again, possible because of what Android is based upon.

Run the win8 launcher on Android
