Is Windows 8 An Existential Threat To Android Tablets?

Windows 8: for x86 machines - regular desktops and laptops, and some more expensive tablets. It's a desktop OS/tablet OS hodge-podge.
Windows RT: for ARM machines (NO compatibility with existing apps), aka tablets - it only runs tablet apps (metro), and Office. (The desktop only works with the included apps, like Office, IE, and Explorer. That's IT.)
Android: for tablets and phones, not for desktops or laptops.
Personally, I've found that word processing is hell on ANY tablet, unless you have a keyboard, and decent software. (that's pretty much Windows RT's only strong point IMO) Also, it's worth noting that metro apps (tablet) work on Windows 8 AND RT most of the time, but there aren't a whole lot of major ones at the moment.
Need a Windows ISO image?

The Mini has the advantage of being shown at Apple stores. Its hard to find the Nexus 7 to try out. The Nook and Kindle Fire are nice but without replacing their ROMS somewhat limited. I guess the death of Android hasn't reached Acer as they are producing a $100.00 tablet. Nor did it reach some of the larger OEMS.

Google my win only because they are better known and have more money for R&D. But will they be able to out perform Apple, remember Linux is a UNIX clone and OS X is Unix. Apple has a very established and powerful UI and is far ahead the any Linux Distribution.
The problem is that manufactures are in need of a new OS now that they are thinking of dumping Windows. They can't have OS X so why not just pick up OpenSUSE , Ubuntu or why not Mint?
WinDos is Dead lets move on...

Yup, cause if it`s anything more complicated than icons on a grid, I don`t understand it and it sucks.
A co-worker recently bought a galaxy tab (having had an ipad for years). One of the first questions was.. `why is this so complicated, there is too much you can do.` I laughed at that. I said if you don`t want to learn how to use the tablet you can always just hit the apps button and make it act just as simple as an iPad.
It`s been about 3 months, he no longer finds it "complicated" and is thoroughly enjoying his new tablet.
