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?

Because I my income depends on selling services around software development.

I used to be 100% open source zealot, until I had to start earning my own money, and discovered how hard it is to create any type of business around open source.

When I see people blindly defending open source, for me it always comes across as someone that wants everything for free, and does not earn its money selling software, so it is easy to state that everything should be free.

OK, you got burned, we get it. Happens to everyone at some time or the other. Now, get the hell over it.
Just because someone is defending or prefer open source doesn't mean they think all software should be be free or that it's some kind of evil sin if companies mix business models. In fact, I rarely see anyone making that argument and it certainly wasn't made anywhere in this thread.
