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?

All you have to do is look at Red Hat. They have been going through 25% growth quarter after quarter pretty much since they went IPO. They don't seem to have a problem with the Open Source way.

Problem is, how many Red-Hats can there be world wide?

Why do you think companies are moving to CentOS?

The limit how many companies can there be is set by the size of the market.

Red Hat has to constantly improve to stay ahead of the competition. They do take some shortcuts though (like keeping their git commit history secret to fight against OEL).

Regarding "your moving to CentOS" remark, it would be interesting if you could quantify your claim.
