Can I install this ''Splashtop OS'' directly on currently running Windows XP OS

This add-on doesn't support windows operating systems? If yes, then why this website is advertising for that, while 90% people in this world use windows based operating systems.

this website is about technology and any thing related to it so i think it concern who want to know any thing new in technology :p

I had no problems getting Splashtop OS to work on my 5 year old Dell XP Pro SP3 laptop. It just adds a boot option, so you can choose whether to boot into XP or Splashtop. Ubuntu does this too.

Hardware Limitations:

  • only does 1024x768 screen resolution
  • doesn't recognize my Broadcom Ethernet card; only works with my WiFi
  • doesn't support Synaptics Multitouch features

You can add Apps from Google Chrome's web site.
