Wondering if anyone is working on this or if it is even possible? Would love to throw the latest Windows 8.1 on here too!

Doesn't belong in this forum,
See http://forum.xda-developers.com/onep...tirom-t2809151

Windows 8.1 is closed source and will not ported to Android devices since it would be copyright infringement and Microsoft would most likely send a Cease & Desist.

What forum does it belong in (unless you posted this before it was moved to Q&A)?

I searched "Dual Boot" but not "multirom"! Live and learn....

You posted it in development forums, I reported the thread and the mod moved it here.

MultiROM is dual boot, you can dual boot multiple custom ROMs but only ROMs that are Android. Android phones cannot run non-Linux Operating Systems.

Yes, I understand that. I was merely pointing out that while attempting to do my due diligence, I first searched the forum by searching the term "Dual boot". I didn't think to search "multirom". Get it?
