No, it is not possible. The main issue (next that you need a x86 cpu which likely your netbook has) is that Android is not a typical Linux system. The OS uses the Linux kernel but apart from that it uses very different libraries, it doesn't use X and so on.


But you can at least root such a device and/or install Linux on it to run Wine.

That link is refering to an Armel version of Wine...

but some of the newer Android smartphones ( ie, ASUS Padfone Mini w/ 7" tablet dock ) are running Intel Atom processors & since they're in the same family, wouldn't it be easier to target this market first?
