Microsoft To ARM Win8 Tablet Makers: No Dual Boot For You This may seem a bit of inside baseball, but it’s a fairly interesting fact for folks looking forward to thin-and-light Win8 devices running ARM chips rather than Intel. According Computer World, devices running ARM versions of Win8 will not be able to run other OSes, like Android, thanks to something called Secure Boot. A version of Secure Boot is built into many mobile devices – namely phones and tablets – in order to avoid bootloader mobile attacks and, obviously, to keep things locked down.

It basically lets you create a folder with a special name that then gives you access to just about all of the controls, options and settings for the OS. Luckily, you can enable GodMode in Windows 8 too!

If you hate the Start Screen and don’t like the fact that you have to use the Charms bar to get to the Start Screen settings, you can use God Mode to access all of the settings via the familiar desktop environment.
