Intel Intel has showed a prototype smartphone based on its low-power Medfield processor and said Intel-based phones from "major players" would be in the market next year. Intel has struggled to get its chips into smartphones and tablets, markets that are dominated today by processor designs from Intel's U.K. rival ARM Holdings.

Microsoft does an "extensive rewrite" of their kernel every second month, according to their own marketing.

I don't believe that for a second.


Oh for gods sake there's numerous articles posted on OSNews about MS work to clean the NT kernel and, being a regular on here for some time, you should have read about this before now.

In fact even ignoring current behaviors, you only have to look at Microsoft's past to see examples of my earlier point:
* Borland vs Visual Studio
* Lotus vs Office
* Netscape vs IE
* Java Applets vs ActiveX controls
* Java runtime vs .NET
* Flash vs Silverlight
* OpenGL vs DirectX
* IRC vs Microsoft Chat
* ICQ / AIM vs MSN
...I could go on.

Microsoft have always wanted exclusivity on the entire software stack.
