windows 8 versus Android

Hey Folks, I know I'm way off base here but I didn't know who to ask and this seemed like a better bet than anything. Here goes:
Can I get rid of the Android OS on my Galaxy Note phone and replace it with Windows. I bought the phone outright so it is not locked to any service; also it is the AT&T version (1717) with an improved processor package. I hate Google and would love to remove it from my life completely.

The Samsung Galaxy Note runs on an ARM CPU. Windows 8 only runs on x86 CPUs, so the answer is no.

OK, thank-you. That is as decisive an answer as I had hoped for albeit a negative one. I can stop fretting and deal with it. Well done.

64 bit programs versus for 64 Bit Windows
Being a newbie to 64 bit software requirements, I have a few simple question. Many programs that I use and programs I've tried and they failed, I always choose the version for 64 Bit Windows 7. As they install, I can see that they are being put in the Programs File (x86). This I thought meant 32...
