Holy crap! Has there been any explanation for that? What possible explanation is there?

I have seen this happen in many Fortune 500 companies that look at open source as a way to get free stuff, nothing else.

Yeah, but from that article it looks like one fortune 500 company completely screwed over another ( in addition other developers). I think this is even more evidence that the higher ups at intel just look at their linux mobile effort as a distraction, rather than an actual shipping product that they care about. If I were an intel dev working on the project, I'd quit the company and find a job where my work is appreciated. Or at the very least lobby to contribute to a different internal effort.

Explanation for what? Samsung's behavior? That is pretty typical for a company which does not have a developed open source culture. You see this sometimes when companies try to get their hardware supported in Linux: they dump a huge load of driver code onto the kernel maintainers which more often than not is so messy that it is rewritten entirely before being accepted.

Or explanation for Intel's desperation? Mobile is the future, and their execs have recognized this. The PC business is contracting and will never again reach today's levels. Intel's position in mobile is laughable, and they badly need to become relevant there - or else become irrelevant altogether.
