Err x86 I think. Compact is just win7 for rom based devices as opposed to installing on hdd.

Don't think Ms will support arm cpu's till windows 8.

The real issue with this is that you'll never get any reasonable video acceleration.
I'd love to get this on my Archie too.

SO i downloaded ce 7 yesterdad and started playing with it. I also just installed the SDE and uruk on my a101.
I think the real issue here is getting the SDE to boot the NK.bin from the ce7 build. If anyone has any ideas on this let me know as I am interested in trying to get something working here.

Has anyone managed to get anything working yet regarding this, I'm bit of a novice really and don't know any coding but I might learn some and see if I can do anything :)

I'm sorry for posting so late, but he Zune HD has an arm processor (tegra apx 2600) and is based off of windows ce 6. If I were to upload the boot file, would this help?

Good idea - I run Liberate on my Zune HD, which allows access to the WinCE desktop. Would be cool to have on a 101.

I'm not very experienced in the realm of mobile linux but am when it comes to standard intel-based hardware. I don't fully understand the booting procedure of tablets but if the bin is an issue then can't you just load it from the AOS boot-loader or something similar?
