You got your wish, Samsung has one although I don't know why you'd want to run Window8.

I can't find a single reference to this product other than ones planted by this guyGÇöoften in these exact words.

My guess? Virus vector.

re: Windows 8 Adoption Hits New Low
I am an IT consultant and have many Corporate Customers who have told me they just cannot afford the huge cost of upgrading their Windows XP which still works just fine, to Windows 7 or 8 So I found a perfect solution for them before Windows XP expires. It is a new commercially available Linux operating system that runs all Windows applications and programs sandboxed inside Linux, making XP 100% immuned to all viruses and malware. requiring no future security updates or any anti virus anti malware software. It is so highly economical and bulletproof that I have already successfully deployed hundreds of these save XP from extinction Linux installs in the last 2 months alone.

This blazing fast 3D operating system is called Robolinux and it installs with all your drivers less than 20 minutes per pc or laptop. They have a revolutionary one click XP OS install that takes just minutes. You do have to show proof of your XP license sticker on each box, but that was easy for my Customers to do.

Check out Robolinux, it will save your company a ton of money:

re: Windows 8 Adoption Hits New Low
good summary of what's not happening with W8.

yes the good news for MS is that businesses will keep buying W7 to replace XP, and for new equipment as well. but W8 is not for them.

it's the consumer markets where Windows is nose diving as people find hand held devices are all they really need. MS could lose 75% of that market in the next two years. W8 or W8.1 is not the answer, because it is still a complicated desktop OS no matter how much touch UI MS lays over it.

it's the end of an era.

Some of it could be folks waiting for new hardware featuring Intel's new power efficient chips. I was in the market for a tablet but now I'm going to wait a while to see what vendors provide with these new Intel chips. I'd love to see a tablet that can run Windows, Android, Linux and whatever else because in terms of buying a disposable device, I already have a smart phone and I'd rather not buy yet another locked-in device. I'd like one with choices that might last a few years and make it possible for me to swap the OS to something else. Who knows where we'll be in three years!
