    I'd like to hear Microsoft's justification for this one. Atom has fully supported the x86 instruction set for the last 8 years. The Atom Z2580 is a dual-core 2GHz processor, more than capable of running Windows 10 with a couple applications.

    Wintel based tablets at the time weren't wildly successful and with the rate at which the things are dropped or just considered obsolete (with an intel atom, I would imagine this happens shortly after unboxing) , how many of them could still be out there?

    Gotta love Linux! Allmost Everything is supported out of the box with the bigger distros like Ubuntu, Mint, etc.

    Aren't they PowerVR based? I guess Imagination have bigger worries than porting 7 year old drivers to Creators Update right now :(
