    Desperately want to see news of win 8 being put on an iPad....id due it in a heartbeat....the new is is amazing. Been using the consumer preview since it came out and can't wait to use it with a touch screen device. Even if they got it going on a touchpad I'd pick one up on eBay in a heartbeat.

    Yeah, I had been hoping the same for a while. Issue is all W8 releases to date (DP, CP) have been for Intel/x86 processors (i.e. same as all previous versions of Windows). The iPad, Touchpad, PlayBook, and most android tabs are all ARM-based, so you won't have much luck for a while.

    Also, WOA (Windows On ARM <- not an official name, despite what some are reporting) won't be distributed as a separate/installable OS; rather, like WP and iOS, it will only be available preinstalled with devices (and optimized for each unique device). So even when W8 goes full release it is unlikely we'll be able to easily load it onto an existing ARM-based tablet; though I'm sure some of our hacker friends at XDA will figure something out once WOA builds begin to emerge...

    Also, don't know what your budget is, but if you want a decent tablet good for W8 I got an EXOPC Slate (an x86-64 based tablet) off eBay for around $350 and have been using the CP on that since. I even saw some postings for the tablet with the CP already loaded-on, though selling for $600+...

    Is it just a imagination or is it true?

    why would you want to run W8 on Ipad any ways?? it probably run better on a tablet actually made to run it!
