Intel The Intel Developer Forum is currently in full swing, but it kicked off with a speech by Intel CEO Paul Otellini.

Otellini's plans for Intel basically come down to one thing: x86 everywhere.

In a world freed from closed software, hardware is much less fixed. We all win. As a bonus, portable software tends to be better software as bugs have less places to hide.


Yeah, right. Have you by the way noticed that Intel is now one of the biggest contributors to the Linux kernel?

See, monopolies can win also in the world of free software.
