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?

Basically bootloader, some drivers, etc... Imagine some graphic specific features like Optimus that are not documented and/or not driver provided, no ways to support them into one or another OS. That could lead to some OS having better support while nothing, technically, prevent them from.

And an OS like Linux being a hack, how can a company be comfortable and confident to an OS that is just a hack ? Do you believe a server could suffer stability issues and just answer "It's just a hack" ?
