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?

I doubt Intel is saying that Linux can't be ported to Clover Trail, I think they are saying that they wont do the work or write the documentation necessary. With the motivation that it is not the way they intend the PC to head in the longer run.
