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 don't know why people offend themselves when I call GNUL a Hack when GNUL developers consider themselves hackers.

If you look into GNUL history it has been a hack. Although it was not considered "Unix" they made it unix like and POSIX compliant, although it was not supported in some platforms they managed to make it work over them. There is no driver support no problem just change some lines in the kernel and compile. Although there was no kernel they managed to get a temporary kernel called Linux which it is still ticking despite being temporal.

That sounds like a hack to me. If you think a hack is bad then theres is nothing to discuss.
