Why do you post in a Windows forum if you're going to make your own OS? Seems off-topic.

As part of my work I travel to Taiwan and there are plenty of companies there ready to work with you to create a new tablet. While I wonder why you would do that, it's your time and money.

Odd. Why not buy the tablet and write your own OS?

To do both seems like a life time of work where as just the OS might be possible with many of those Linux distro's that you could port.

Seems odd to put this in a Windows 8 forum.
