Is It Even Possible to Make Windows Work Well On a Tablet?

Windows could run beautifully on a tablet, but without a App store just for tablets the Applications will not run well.

id say with out some form of 3G/4G/satellite internet etc its pointless, i hate wifi only devices and they need to make it so that everything can connect to some network. but Microsoft would indeed have to work on some sort of tablet app store.

Agree.. app store is the lifeline of tablets :)

* app store is the life line of any mobile device now a days, i remember when i had windows mobile 6.1 i had to plug it into the computer and download programs it was a hassle and nothing was free and i had a weird phone so not everything worked on it,

Already does. Just remote into your desktop using your IPad

remote desktop onto a tablet isnt the same as actually having a windows powered tablet which is what the article was gettin to.

i would rather see windows 7 running bare and some one develop a program to run over it sorta like a skin. remote desktop doesn't cut it i use it on my phone and its nice but not good. but we will see what windows 8 does with tablets. 7 was never meant to be on a tablet device.
