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?

Great chance for AMD to take the lead, that is "if" they can get it together and fix their horrible video drivers for Linux

Not gonna happen, Linux on the desktop is not a moneymaker. The Linux desktop market is simply too small to justify the effort involved; in fact it kind of surprises me that anyone supports gaming GPUs on Linux, period.

(Yes, I use Linux. It Works For Me. But it probably wouldn't if I were into 3D games.)
