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 have to really agree with this - the very language of the article is back-assward... Oh noes, the chip maker doesn't support the OS... and?!?

Since when has it even worked that direction? Operating systems support chips, not the other way around!
