Intel Corporation (INTC), Google Inc. (GOOG), Microsoft Corporation (MSFT): Boot Android, Windows on Same Device?

Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) could be just crying out for attention in the jam-packed tech news world. Or, maybe it could have found the “missing link.” But the company, which regularly updates BIOS code – you know, nothing really sexy to talk about, nor is it generally very newsworthy – is apparently reporting a sort of breakthrough with its latest update. This asks the question of you, a computer user – have you ever wanted to run two operating systems on the same device?

Well, according to Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) – you can. Or will be able to shortly. While Intel warns that this update is too “buggy” to be usable at this point, the company does claim that its latest code update for the Android 4.2.2 OS by Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) has an extra little feature-y wrinkle that will allow a user to boot Android and the Windows 8 OS by Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) on any device that runs on an Intel processor.

Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC)There is a catch, of course – you would have to load Win 8 first, then load the specific Android 4.2.2 for this to be possible. Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) claimed that it has had success with this dual-bot on other devices recently, but it does tell us that if we plan on trying this at home, there are way too many bus for this to be practical at this point. But keep eyes out, because undoubtedly Intel will want to find a way to smooth this out and perhaps make t widely available – imagine a Surface tablet able to switch back and forth between Win 8 and Android (or perhaps Chrome?).

Or how about an Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) MacBook that can toggle over to Chrome? Perish the thought, right?

What do you think? Can this be a practical way for computers to operate in the future – and how can this benefit Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC), provided it can smooth out this new dual-boot concept? Give us your thoughts in the comments section below.
