what are you doing Intel? :
Intel has been one of the major contributor to Linux for all days. But it is now deviating from its path and moving more close to M$. The company has revealed Clover Trail Atom chip, the upcoming Intel chip for laptops and tablets at the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco. Intel also reveled that it will not support Linux. In fact, the chip will support only Windows 8 operating system.
Earlier, Intel announced that around 20 Windows tablets were already in works including Asus Tablet 810, which was showcased at the Computex Show in June. Intel has no intention to port Android to this chipset. This is like taking two opposite route for walking. Earlier Intel has promised to provide better support to Android and now it is abandoning Android to be ported on its upcoming chips.
Only Intel knows the reason and strategy of this game. We can just wait & watch, if Intel gets its wisdom back.
