    Hi and a big welcome to the forum :-)

    As far as I'm aware, there is no possibility of this as android is an operating system and so is windows, one can't be installed over the other. There may be a work around in which case one of the techies will stop by to advise

    Welcome to the forum. Glad you decided to join us. Not possible but you can get Splashtop Remote Desktop and stream your computer screen to your Xoom.

    Welcome. Windows is too bloated and clunky to run on anything unless specifically made for it. Splash top works well.

    Won't say it can't be done but no one has done it yet.

    I cannot wait for it to happen (if ever). Windows was the way to go from the beginning since there was already so much software support and fully qualified entertainment. Has anyone ever seen any PC game (90's or 80's) yet as fun as what's even on the shelves for android now? Go back to the drawing board, folks, and look at what you're offering (for pennies) and make it a quality excursion instead of a 'We'll give you what we want' attitude. What you're offering right now needs work and windows has already delivered.

    I would uninstall this to put windows on right now, if I could, in order to rid this tablet of the entire android experience.

    People get stuck on windows because that's what there was. It might have been the best, at the beginning, but only because there was no competition for windows then. Its hardly a "can't live without OS."

    Why buy an android tablet if you, or anyone else, feel so strongly that android is no good? Wait for the windows tablets.
