    Really interesting article on how to and how not to make a tablet. The last video has been what I've been advocating for a while. It's a fan-made take on what the iPad OS should have been. It's made FOR A TABLET, which is a nice thing...

    Also the Chrome OS looks like it could be very interesting on a Tablet.

    I guess to make this so I can put it in the Android tablet forum (since there is no general Tablet forum *cough**cough*), I should ask: Do you think the Android OS will work on a Tablet?

    So? Do you think ANDROID, which is a distro of Linux, will run well on a tablet? It's not like I was asking if Linux could run on a Tablet, because we all know Linux can run well on anything.

    Linux could run on an iPod touch as well. But then there's the old question of drivers. Others have tried (they didn't get very far). Definitely no Android without any support and okays from Apple.

    But what about on another Tablet... there's more than one Tablet out there, you know. Not just iPads. I'm talking about Tablets that have the Android OS on them and asking how you think they will work. This has nothing to do with how cool Linux is and if Apple will allow it...
