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?

OK, so what proprietary software vendor pays for open source ? I think you are confused.

A lot of money from businesses, sure.

Most of the money for open source comes from hardware vendors and services companies (think companies like IBM, RedHat).

I guess I also see Google, Facebook, Twitter, LiveJournal and similair online properties as services companies as they don't sell any software.

They do have proprietary software but they don't sell it, they just deliver a service.
