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?

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.

Let's keep that strawman away from this argument. Free Software is about keeping the power at the consumer side. We still are willing to pay for software but always keep in mind that a competitor can take the source and provide the same service.
