The Verge writes one of the things Intel will be focusing on at this year's edition of CES will be dual-OS systems that offer both Android and Windows. Microsoft isn't happy with this development though, and may try to convince PC makers to cancel their plans by withholding marketing budgets or stripping away OEM discounts on Windows 8.
Sources close to the matter tell The Verge that Intel is behind the idea, and that the chipmaker is working with PC manufacturers on a number of new devices that could be announced at the show. Internally known as "Dual OS," Intel's idea is that Android would run inside of Windows using virtualization techniques, so you could have Android and Windows apps side by side without rebooting your machine.
