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?

Did you actually just say that?

Yes. Do you want more examples?
Many of todays programming languages: Python, PHP, Haskell, Erlang, Ruby, D, Caml etc etc.
Stuff that powers the internet: nginx, apache, lighttpd, varnish, RoR, tomcat, jetty etc etc.
The list goes on.

But hey, lets pretend open and free has never advanced or contributed anything, if that makes you feel better.

You may want to do your homework before you make all those claims. Also, who said anything about open never advancing or contributing anything? How typical -- someone gets upset by a comment and rather than address the truth in it, they get all dramatic and go on a rant over something that was never said in the first place.
