    maybe, but i am guessing that would require some security exploit due to it messing with the OS

    Only time will tell. No one knows for sure if it's even compatible.

    Why? What for?
    It could also run Windows, Linux, iOS, OSX, Amiga Workbench, OS/2, CP/M or whatever OS you want to port/recompile and create hardware drivers for.
    But why?

    Anything runs on ARM if you recompile it and provide/write drivers, specially Windows CE, RT and Windows 10.

    Actually, yes it does.
    But it really depends on what kind of "hacked" you mean. I would find it unlikely, as
    Maybe something like A9LH would do the trick.

    EXACTLY! You have no idea about the security and you know limited details about it! So how could you possibly be discussing all this.

    Even more of a reason not to make useless threads right now.

    my dad works for nintendo.
    meanwhile, i guarantee you that nintendo will not provide you with a otherOS function...
    sony did it but eventually removed it :'(

    nintendo didn't even provided a cool video player for the 3ds... (we got youtube but it was not local player) or dvd player on the wii...
    sony is more cool in giving other extra features... the ps3 even played files via streaming!
