Is there an easy possibility to clone the screen of my s4 on my Win8 Notebook? I know there is a function for apple products (i.e. iphone/ipad and mbp via airport), but I would prefer a non-apple solution which is more open (but as simple).

Are you looking for video or video+audio? If you just want to mirror the screen, you can get something like Droid VNC Server or TeamViewer QuickSupport. If you want to broadcast audio and video then I'm not sure how you'd do that.

Cloning the screen would be enough. (audio broadcasting just a nice extra though...)

I have a 4540s that I hackintoshed with Windows 8 as a dual boot. In mavericks, airplay works great on my Apple tv this probably isn't much help though, but it took so long to get it all working that I wanted to brag

Well yeah, those work, and you can also try BBQscreen demo in legacy mode and that might work a bit faster. I tried it but I was too lazy to make it work well.

It's a pitty that there doesn't seem to be an equivalent for airplay/airport for android/windows...

Sometimes Apple definitely does something good... ^^

Well technically Apple's Airplay doesn't just play on a Mac without a program on the Mac either. To airplay to a Mac you need a server program, same as android. Google also makes the Chromecast to compete with the Apple TV, and either devices can to display out through a cable.
