Hello All,

This version of Android has Baytrail-T (the tablet processor within the SOC) support. It runs as smoothly as I would expect (i.e. no emulation).

Crazygoldfish: Do you mean boot another OS from the tablet? If so, then a qualified "yes". It is actually possible to run any MS operating system on the tablets. There is no point in actually doing so (driver and stability issues). I've done it as an academic exercise when I was suffering a period of insomnia.
You cannot use the standard installers.. many low level "adjustments" are required.

If you mean dual boot Android then "Yes".. I'm still playing with this. This version of Android has a 32bit Grub2 bootloader. Grub2 can be made to work with the windows bootloader. I intend to see if I can utilise the SD card slot for Android in any way...

I'll post details here of any progress..

Hello All,

I've not tried booting anything MS off of an external drive but it should certainly be possible. Grub2 calls...

My development work on Linux (working on improving driver support) is with 64 bit Linux on a 500GB external drive.
I've nearly got everything (hardware) working.

When it's finished I'll post details if anyone is interested.

Hi guys,
I'm new here but I thought I would put my 2 cents in. I've had the Linx 10 for a couple of months now and I hated it with Windows, so I worked on installing Android as a Base OS and remove windows all together. At the moment I'm running Android 4.4. The touch screen and WiFi works, but I have other problems, the power/lock button doesn't work (temp fix with a volume to power app), no sound at all and the rotation is messed up (fixed with 3rd party rotation lock). I'm not sure if I would be able to help anyone as I just installed it following a normal tutorial and a few attempts and changing formats of the SSD got it right. But I'm happy to answer any questions.

Yep. I did. Check my post.
I'll try and get a Linx 8 at some point to try it on that with the iwork 8 image
