If you could, would you throw Windows 8 on your Dell Streak 7?


In case you didn't know, Microsoft today unveiled some more information about its next iteration of Windows, aptly named Windows 8. Among many other tablet-focused features, 8 touts the ability to be run on ARM processors . . . much like the Tegra 2 found in your Dell Streak 7. 

Windows 8 is able to run on older, much less-advanced hardware, so the Tegra 2 processor will probably be a fantastic fit for it. So my question for you is this one: if you could, would you throw Windows 8 on your Dell Streak 7? 

The only problem I see in installing Windows 8 on a completely (hardware) stock Streak 7 would be your storage space, but that can easily be remedied by purchasing a larger SD card. Unfortunately, we won't be able to see how that's going to work because, while a developer preview of Windows 8 is available right now, it isn't going to be supporting ARM processors.

How does Windows 8 look to you guys? Is it something you'd like to see on your Dell Streak 7? I know that if there was a way, I'd be all over it.
