BTW, I have never heard of "Android based Windows". That seems like an oxymoron to me

Agrred, Android based windows, like wut. One is made by google and the other by microsoft. Not to mention all C++, c# and DOS code is directly incompatible with arm (what andorid uses). I mean yes some android phones are 64 bit and stuff but thats arm64 NOT the AMD64 standard that desktops and laptops use. The 32 bit x86 standard that laptops use is called i386 and was developed by intel. amd64 was developed by amd then purchased by intel who license amd to still use it. This is exactly why only Intel and AMD make desktop and laptop processors.

Companies like snapdragon simply take ARM chip designs and change them into their own processor, but its still an ARM based processor.

Two entirely different architectures, one designed for low power, standby , small screens and apps, the other for MAJOR general purpose use.

Take my word on this, the two will never merge

It's a true that ARM chip is an essentially simplified AMD CPU chip developed for portable devices such as smart phones, tablets etc. where performance requirements aren't so high and lower power consumption is important. I also understand, that apps and executable or install files for Windows PC are not compatibile for Windows ARM platform because of insufficient capability.
But how is possible, that ASUS T100TA with (supposedly) "ARM" CPU chip is seamlessly able to run with full featured Windows 10 PRO (for PC)... ?

ARM is essentially not a simplified AMD cpu, other than both starting with the letter 'A' the similarity stops. One is CISC architecture the other is RISC. There's no single intersection between the two, AMD has not been involved with the development of the architecture.

The ASUS T100 uses an Intel atom cpu. which is an 64 bit x86 core from Intel. (but since the T100 only has a 32bit UEFI, it's impossible to run a 64bit OS).
The T100 is not a PC, since it's using SDIO for internal communication instead of PCIE, making it more a tablet than a PC, this is why it's a bother getting linux to work on the device, since SDIO support is rather experimental and immature.
Windows 10 (and 8) is suited to run on x86 cpu's with SDIO connecting everything else.
Android on the other hand is running a modified Linux kernel making it having to do exactly nothing with windows, and the other way around.

Windows 10 is able to run on the arm architecture btw, look at the surface rt with the tegra, and there should also be a port able to run on the raspberry pi.
