How about booting up Windows Phone 8.1 on your Samsung netbook?

Bored geeks can do some rather interesting things, such as XDA-Developer member Moonlits, who, failing to get the leaked WP 8.1 SDK running on his PC, decided to grab the disk image included and try and boot it up on his old netbooks.

Surprisingly this went a lot better than expected, with a functional version of Windows Phone 8.1 appearing on both his Samsung NC10 and Asus eeePC 701SD.

Of course, as can be seen from the video, the UI does not fit very well into the landscape screen, and Moonlits reports most buttons do nothing, making this more of a demo than anything practical.

Many have said Microsoft should be using Windows Phone as their low-cost PC OS. After seeing the demo, do our readers still think that’s a good idea?
