Windows 7 Assigned Guest OS Status

At an Acer product launch in central London earlier today, Register Hardware got up close and personal with the firm’s first netbook to ship with two operating systems. The machine has been updated to run both Google’s Android OS and the 32-bit version of Windows 7.

The first point to note is that despite this two-OS capability, you can actually only boot up into Android. Switch the machine on from scratch or do a restart, and you'll go straight to the Google OS.
To load Windows 7, you must first start Android, then select "Switch OS" from Android’s slide-out menu and then wait for Windows to load up in the usual way.

The Linux version of Aladdin 4D is very important for us but the Windows version is not. As you already know and as noted in the article above Windows continues to loose market-share and relevance.
