The CEO of Evolve Technologies has managed to install and run Windows XP on his Apple iPad. This has come after a recent news on engadget where someone has installed Windows 95 on his iPad using an x86 emulator.

The Windows XP on iPad is an important hack as it will allow bypassing certain restrictions imposed by Apple. According to Dave, it took him only five minutes to complete this iPad hack.

The secret behind this hack is VMware Connectwise and here is the video that explains the whole process.

    He’s running XP on a server somewhere and is using the iPad as a terminal to display Windows’s output. This is not really like running XP on an iPad itself BUT it is an astounding accomplishment! Just for the record . . .

    This is complete nonsense. This is an RDP session to a windows machine NOT AN EMULATOR. The guy in video should not be so proud unless he is a retard

  • Lauren Glenn said:

    I did the same thing. It’s called RDP except that I was smart enough to keep my mouth shut about it because it’s not a hack.

    The fact that he’s a CEO should say enough about how retardly he is to be able to post this as a real hack. No real IT’r would ever post such nonsense
