Supposedly, this chip is "designed for Windows 8". What?

Please stand up.
Now i can imagine the newest popular bloggers tune: Linux is free, has a bigger software library and such but look at its power efficiency. It just lacks the magic powers of Windows 8.

From the other pov I'm affraid this move signifies beggining of the end of Intel Linux based investments in an idependent software stack and its general open approach.
