Windows? On an iPad? Yep, that's right - and all thanks to OnLive's new "OnLive Desktop" app. And don't think for a minute this is a cut-down version of Windows. After installing the app, you'll have access to Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and more. A full on-screen Windows keyboard is also included, giving you a true desktop experience on your tablet (Android devices are also supported). The service uses the same cloud-based technology as OnLive's gaming offering. The Windows software actually runs on their servers, with your inputs transferred back and forth in real time, along with a video-feed of the desktop environment. Clever, huh?
