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?

Should we remind them who currently sell the more ?

Google has released something like a 1.3 million Android activation... per DAY ! I bet Windows 8 RTM have a long road to catch this alike. So Intel decided to skip the Android market because Microsoft asked them to ? OK, fair to them, and good for ARM licensees, because at this rate x86 is neither going to catch on the mobile market.

Clever move Intel, clever move.
