Microsoft For more than two decades, Microsoft's software and Intel's processors were so wedded that the pairing came to be known as Wintel. But as that computing era wanes, Microsoft is turning to a new source of chip design: its own labs.

This is supposed to be a kinder gentler Microsoft, so I don't know. I doubt they would get more anti-trust stuff added on. As long as they were the only ones who sold their style of PCs then I don't see the problem, and besides MS doesn't have that great of a track record of selling PC hardware.

Everything is pretty vague at the moment, and we would really need to see what sort of ideas these guys start working on. It could be something as innocent as a co-processor for AMD's Torrenza initiative, or as insidious as a bios that only installs windows. We'll see what they come up with.
