In theory if hackers could get Linux installed on it, they might get Windows installed on it. But here's the thing and this may shock you: the PS4 is not actually a PC compliant system. You can't install a PC compatible Linux distro on a PS4 because the OS is expecting things that the PS4 doesn't have. It's mostly legacy features though, and why would a PS4 need things from an IBM 5150?聽 So if Windows is expecting the same things that a PC compatible Linux distro is expecting, then it won't work. And unlike Linux, you likely can't fix Windows to make it work. Though I guess in theory you can run Linux on a PS4, then run a VM to run Windows.

But remember, just because it uses an x86 processor doesn't make it a PC.

No, the OS needs to support the motherboard and processor.
