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?

dull jobs and in Linux...they just don't get done. Don't take My word for it

The White House, for example, uses Linux and Drupal and it's there working in spite of usual attacks.

your desktop doesn't crash when you switch from a video to a chat window like X-Server

People can see by themselves how it doesn't happen with good software. Don't take my word for it, if people want to try it by themselves, there's a "Virtual machine of Kubuntu 11.04 i386 Desktop, stable version" on
https://docs.google.com/folder/d/0B2UJmdRmDlL1VmRWZ3dfaGdJTUU/edit
to conduct experiments on it. Just don't update it to an upper version of Kubuntu and, before updating a GUI program, close that program.

I usually employ a copy of it as a virtual machine and it works stably, too.

About it, there is a README.txt on the same web address.

If someone has any doubt, on this thread you can make questions.
