Intel Chalk this one up on the 'uh, what?'-list of acquisitions. Intel announced today that it has acquired Mcafee, the security and antivirus company we all know and love. The press release is a bit vague on why, exactly, Intel made this rather odd acquisition.

Seems strange here...this looks like a windows centric purchase.

Last time I checked, Windows market is still the most important one for Intel. Defending that is worth a shot.
