I’m happy enough with Android and its array of free or cheap apps on my phone and tablet. Maybe the main advantage is the battery life extension but certainly might be fun to play with if they give it out basically free like they pretty much did with the original versions of 10.
Probably if you buy one of the new laptops for it it will be bundled with it preinstalled I would imagine.
My latest Android Tablet is lucky to run about 3 hours but the screen is beautiful and it’s very fast and has been pretty stable. Video looks great anyways and certainly would like much better battery life.
Hard to say if my Tablet has enough ump to run it has it’s about a year old as far as the ARN cpu it uses and probably would need more memory.

I can’t imagine there’s a lot of software available for ARM Windows. This should give ARM users a huge advantage, since they can use the same apps they’ve always used (at least, in theory).
