Linux is in a similar boat, many packages are arm compiled. WINE can even run x86 programs on arm through qemu, Galactic Pinball on ARM FTW!
@ejimmyjj Way off topic (sorry about that, folks), but this is Big News to me. I'm tied to Windows only for a program (EccoPro) that came out in 1995 (so it can't require much processor power). What ARM-based tablets and OSes would allow me to run an old Windows program? Or have a helpful link? Thanks in advance
P.S. Heck, could I even install such an OS and QEMU on my HP TouchPad?
Bought the Asus Vivosmart tablet from Staples when they had the 75off windows 8 computer/tab. Can vouch for this tablet-works well, runs Office Pro 2013 without hiccups. I don't do much gaming or graphics processing, so mostly working on powerpoint/excel/word, and surfing the web. While the display is slightly inferior to the iPad retina (as expected from the specs), its hard to beat a full function tablet at this price.
