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?

Member since:

so basically GNU/Linux has to adapt itself to any hardware condition out there whether the hardware companies document it's hardware features or not, so there is nothing new here.

And do you think Windows or OSX doesn't have to? That the code to support the features manifests itself from the thin air?

Google domination from my point of view is really really bad for consumers like me who hate advertising

There has always been advertising, there always will be. If Google suddenly just dropped dead some other entity would replace it and you'd still be seeing ads. As such Google's domination is totally irrelevant on this point, you are just deluding yourself if you believe otherwise.

and is really bad for software developers like me because users are beginning to ask why do developers charge money for software when a big company like Google has so many free products and services (real life case)

If users questioning you is bad then the problem is on your end. A good developer knows how to answer that question.
