Intel Clover Trail will get Linux and Android support after all. "Intel has plans for another version of this platform directed at Linux/Android; however we are not commenting on the platform specifics or market segments at this time. Stay tuned," Intel told ZDBet.

The GPU is PowerVR, no doubt the Linux driver will be as half-assed as the CedarView driver. So no thanks, I'll skip Clover Trail entirely.

I'm waiting for ValleyView: An out-of-order execution Atom CPU and an Ivy Bridge based GPU (gen7) which is all Intel's and as such will have a fully open-source driver. Now that's the stuff ;)
