Re: A big step by Intel
"Intel is the biggest loser here. It engineered processors that are capable of running two operating systems, and these chips were to play a crucial role in the dual-boot machines in question"
Here's an interesting point that's tangential to this quote... at CES, Intel reps strongly implied, though did not say, that "dual OS" had Google's blessing. Specifically, they said Intel worked with Google to make Android run on x86 chips-- but that likely refers to Atom smartphones and tablets, not the Core-based "dual OS" chip in the Asus Transformer. It struck me at the time that the comments were carefully worded.
