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?

Open Systems != Open source.

You can have open systems, where interfaces and protocols are defined, without open source.

Actually Email and other communication mechanisms fall under that situation. They are protocols defined by RFC documents, and they exist way before open source.
