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?

MS dictated this

Clearly, this is something that Microsoft dictated, both in the Hondo case as in the Clover Trail one. AMD saying they want to give "exclusive launch rights" to MS confirms this. I am sure Linux will fully support Hondo. Not so sure about Clover Trail because of the PowerVR stuff...
