Yeah so wouldn't it be cool if we ran windows 8.1 on our nexus devices? The roms around are just different forms of the same android with a tweak here, one there, a speed boost over there and a better benchmark score way over there. Great with the highest benchmark I'm sure to live ten years longer. Is this something you guys would want? I certainty can't do it. So anyone working on such a thing? Is it even possible? I heard something about Microsoft approving something like that or something.

Would you really want Windows RT?

Microsoft's software is closed source - the reason you see lots of Android development is because anyone can download the source code and make edits. To get Win 8.1 on the Nexus 7 (I'm assuming you mean the RT version), Google would have to pay Microsoft the licensing fee which most likely they won't do.

Yeah i know but even RT would be fine. And I don't mean official windows and Google making a deal, I mean some XDA developer coming through. Well I guess no then. Thank you. Im not a total noob, I just like asking noob questions once in awhile for noobs sake

He/she wouldn't be able to post it on xda since it would be illegal
