Default LG Ally + Windows Phone 7 OS = awesome???

Does ANYONE know if it is possible to flash my LG Ally and reformat it with the Windows Phone 7 OS? I like the android OS just fine but the LG Ally is really just too slow to handle it, whereas WP7 doesn't require a dual-core to run smooth as butter. So I think that the WP7 OS would be a much better fit for my old Ally.

Anyone got any ideas?

The Ally doesn't meet the minimum requirements for Windows Phone 7.

Android doesn't need a dual core to be smooth either.

Even if the Ally had the specs, there's not enough demand for a WP7 port. And even if there was, it would be damned difficult to get it working well enough to be a daily driver.

If you like WP7, there is a launcher that emulates it.
Here you go.

(That's a link. Just saying.)
