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?

Python development got funded by the companies Guido worked for.

PHP development is funded by Zend.

Haskell development is funded by Microsoft Research.

Erlang was developed at Ericson, before it got released as open source.

The list goes on.

Very few successful open source projects, if any, would have succeeded if it wasn't for the dirty money that some companies selling closed source software invested on it.

I used to be a big open source fan until I realized, that without a way to pay for bills, being a fan does not help much.
