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?

Monopolies always do this.

If Microsoft or Intel do the same, the open source communities response will probably be one of a defensive nature.
(i.e. SCO...etc.)

If Intel or Microsoft wants to destroy the Open Source community.

I say let them try.

It will be their last business decision they ever make.
