I'm starting University soon and I'll be doing software engineering. I lose my stuff a lot. So I was thinking that losing a tab would better than losing my laptop :3 So I was wondering whether there's a way to install windows ( Pc version ) or linux and run my IDEs on it and use a bluetooth mouse and a keyboard to program? I know the processors are different but is there a way? I'm open to rooting. Thanks In Advance, Avishka

Hello Avishka,


You can try to get a tablet that runs WIndows, natively. There a lot of "cheap" options available. But I highly recommend that you don't install Windows or PC based Linux (Ubuntu, Redhat, etc.) on a tablet running Android natively, as it probably cannot handle the overhead.
