Are there any posibilities that we can run Windows xp on the tablet some day?

i've seen a video that runs ubuntu, i dont want to see the word "ubuntu" in this whole thread please, thanks.

if there are possibilities.. how can we start, should i make a facebook page where we all manifest our feelings?

Reason in my case: i have some especial software that only run on windows xp, and also a couple of games specially Ragnarok Online (private server) that i play.

What I'd be a lot more interested in is a version of wine running on the Tab, either directly (which seems rather unlikely) or inside that brilliant OS that you don't want mentioned.

GRAPHICAL ftp client, DreamWeaver, Macromedia Flash, Notepad ++

None whatsoever!

Tab is ARM based, not x86 based. The only "hope" would be an VM, but even if someone could be bothered, performance would likely be dreadful.

Ubuntu is open source and has been ported to ARM.

Won't ever happen, and it would run like total dog**** if it did.

You can already play your hacked MMO on a cheap netbook, and as primitive as Ragnarok is, that's all you need.

Ubuntu! Oh I'm sorry your majesty, I'll get to work on an arm version of windows xp right away.

You could use a remote desktop client to connect to a windows xp machine. There is absolutely no way to run windows xp natively and there never will be.
