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?

[Remnove comment that does not apply anyway]

Very few successful open source projects, if any, would have succeeded if it wasn't for the dirty money that some companies selling closed source software invested on it.


Maybe, maybe not but that's not what we're discussing anyway.
You could also argue that a lot of commercial projects would not have succeeded without the OSS projects they build on and use but that's also not the point.
Who's talking about dirty money anyway? Not me that's for sure.

The point is, for those of you who somehow fail to see it, both closed and open-source software and systems spur advancements and contribute to the field.
I really don't know why some are so dead set against this simple fact.
