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?

really? Because I dont see Intel announcing a new atom based proc for Linux. If this is "the" processor line to compete against ARM, don't you think it should be able to run Linux too?


This will just push more vendors to switch to ARM if they were even considering X86 in the first place. Intel's poor track record for X86 SoCs has already pushed enough vendors back to ARM because of the poor support from Intel
