    I think it would be good for Android users, who want to move to Windows 8! So they can run the Android Apps on it.

    Fantastic! (I can't believe I never noticed this topic before).

    Now I can play "Hay Day" without having to keep an old iPad around.

    The latest version of BlueStacks seems somewhat useable on a Surface Pro, of course because of the touchscreen; but slower than on my non-touch desktop machines.

    It's already on the Windows store but it is nothing more than a message tile.

    And... I just found out what is the "catch" for BlueStacks.

    Every few days, it asks me to subscribe to the premium version for USD $2 per month, or I can download their "sponsored apps" to my android virtual machine.
