Default Mobile OS --> PC OS instead of PC --> mobile

With iphone's announced 64-bit processor... anyone else think that phones can realistically (in the future) run PC software/games? I know Microsoft is trying to make Windows "more" mobile like with Metro UI (what is it called now again? )

But why not expect it to shift the other way and watch Apple/Microsoft's sink of money into making their PC/laptop more mobile OS like become a push against the trend.

I can "almost" see Android doing well with this. It wouldn't be a far stretch to integrate Android and Ubuntu (or another linux) into an OS. Something like a computer that makes calls? Android/Windows phone already has "office" suites, tabbed browsers, games. What separates them from PC/laptops is screen size. I'm waiting for the day I can run "real" Windows OS (not windows phone) on a phone.

I've dual booted my phone/tablet into ubuntu for a computer OS. While they worked, the processors didn't handle it well but why not expect this to go away?

not sure this is right section, feel free to move it somewhere else
