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?

You could, I don't know, run Linux on ARM? If the multitude of chips Intel makes don't fit your needs, buy an ARM, use a normal Atom, or wait until Linux catches up, then buy one of these new chips.

The vendors are better off switching to ARM. Normal Atom isn't an option for these use cases. Intel has dropped the ball way too many times for their X86 SoCs.
