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?

All those examples only work for enterprise software, where people are willing to pay for support.

When you don't pay for support, like desktop software, it is not possible to keep a company afloat, just by doing PayPal donations.

Mozilla does produce some enterprise software (such as Bugzilla) but I think the majority of users are Firefox end users who don't pay for support. Especially #3 and #5 can generate revenue from end users, and this is how Canonical hopes to profit from being preloaded on the next Dell lineup.

Besides, you asked:
how many Red-Hats can there be world wide?
and Red Hat exclusively sells to enterprise customers.
