As I have understand this system has lot of specifics, the laptop  
hardware ask for some unusual requirements (no hdd,...), quite different 
power management, etc. Also it has limiter processor resources which 
looks to me to like basic requirement for specific OS. So right out of 
box i don't see how will windows run on this. never less i am personally 
more interested in current Open Source solution as it will give 
possibility for localization and adaption for specific use in different 
circumstances by local development community.
