Intel You'd think this sort of stuff belonged to the past - but no. Apparently, Microsoft is afraid of Android on its Windows 8 tablets, because Intel has just announced that it will provide no support for Linux on its clover Trail processors. Supposedly, this chip is "designed for Windows 8". What?

This is absolutely not a regression what-so-ever. If Intel wants to produce a chip line specifically designed or intended for use with Windows 8, it has every right to do so. It has no affect on any of their other chips and there is zero evidence there's anything to panic over. Rather than attempting to spread FUD, how about "we" look at this from a sensible standpoint. Or would that be asking too much?
