    Reports: Say goodbye to Android + Windows dual OS devices - Liliputing (click for full article)

    by Brad Linder - March 14, 2014

    -- At the start of 2014, it looked like "dual OS" tablets running both Android and Windows software could be the next big thing. Chip makers Intel and AMD were pushing the dual OS approach, and Asus unveiled one of the first dual OS devices, a quad-mode machine called the Transformer Book Duet that could function as a Windows or Android tablet... or a Windows or Android laptop.

    Now it looks like folks who want a dual OS device might have to build one themselves. A number of reports have surfaced in the past month suggesting that neither Google nor Microsoft want PC makers to offer dual OS products... and both software makers could be exerting pressure to keep it from happening.

    They don't want to share common hardware. Makes sense...
