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?

Android numbers don't seem accurate.

Android 2.2 0.21%
Android 3.2 0.09%
- Am I the only one who this these numbers are flawed? According to the Google mobility blog "With a year-on-year growth rate of more than 250%, 850,000 new Android devices are activated each day, jetting the total number of Android devices around the world past 300 million"

According to Microsoft "Since October 2009, when the product launched, more than 630 million Windows 7 licenses have been sold."
So according to Google and Microsoft those numbers are flawed, Android is doing about half of what Windows 7 is doing and this is considering Microsoft's long history with OS's, Google is relatively new in this arena however we aren't comparing apples with apples as the OS's play in different fields. Still those numbers are flawed.
