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?

AMD doesn't have products in this space (arm area of power effiviency) and they clearly stated they don't intend to compete there. This leaves Intel as the sole x86 solution. This is really strange bc they have received great support from Google.

As it turns out, AMD does have a tablet product in its roadmap. You know what, they made it Windows 8 only too ;)
