    Install Windows 8 on an Android Stick

    Hello fellow techies.

    I keep wondering, is it possible to install Windows 8, 8.1 or 10 Preview even on an Android Stick? I'm talking about the Iconbit Toucan Stick 3D Pro.

    I believe it has an A8 ARM Cortex dual core 1.0GHz processor and 1GB of RAM.

    Also about 4 gigs of onboard memory.

    Does Ubuntu even work on this thing?

    MS is promising to deliver a simplified version of Win 10 for the ARM processor in the new Raspberry Pi. Other than that there is Win 8.x RT which supports ARM processors but not sure if it supports the one in your device.

    I think the RT is limited to a specific generation of ARM CPUs, the ones they themselves put in their tablets.
