The netbook uses Android as a quick-boot OS to allow the user quick access to limited functions without having to spend time waiting for Windows to load.
I thought Asus had learned by now that it wasn't beneficial?
A Linux OS only slows booting Windows, and the majority of the people want Windows, not a half assed OS that is only able to browse the Internet!

If it's a smartbook,the only "Windows" it could boot is Windows CE. None of the recent Windows runs on ARM processors. Kinda defeats the point of running Windows if it's just the smartphone version of it.

I'd be fine with just Android or Ubuntu on a sub $200 "smartbook" like that. It's not like you plan to do 3D development on it or anything.

I can pretty much say that this could kill Atom in the future..

Lets face it.. It should be able to do what netbook can do.. and pretty much faster given the lighter OS.. and it should fulfill its purpose of LIGHT workload..
