    Default My Xoom running Windows 8

    ...well... not exactly running it. But I think that would be quite awesome. I thought some of you might enjoy this.

    And for added overkill, the machine I'm remoted into for this picture is my MacBook Pro which is running Windows 8 as a VM.

    While we know that it will never happen, wouldn't it be cool to have a Xoom dual-booting Android and Windows 8?

    I use multiple remote apps for varying purposes. In this particular example, it is LogMeIn.

    Could you actually use the touch interface through, logmein? I wouldn't think the drivers would be installed.
