Hardware, Embedded Systems Currently, there's a lot of hype around Android on ARM-based netbooks, a type of netbook arriving later this year. However, despite the obvious choice for Android and other Linux systems, NVIDIA has openly stated their preference for... Windows CE. ARM and Asus are also quite sceptical about Android on ARM netbooks.

I don't know about chip makers but I do know that the CEO of Broadcom seems to like a good old fashioned coke fuelled orgy - not that there is anything wrong with that. Maybe if Sun and Linux vendors pooled some money together to bring in some high class Columbian blow - it might convince the CEO to give up the 'stuck up prick' attitude towards opensource.
