Linux: Intel more active in desktop Linux Posted Nov 24, 2004 - 07:10 AM

Intel more active in desktop Linux

"Intel has made substantial efforts to boost Linux, which most often runs on computers using the company's processors, but those efforts have been largely confined to powerful networked computers called servers. The chipmaker warmed up to desktop PC makers when partners in the Asian countries started requesting more help with desktop Linux, company spokesman Scott McLaughlin said.

Now when Intel ships the components out of which companies assemble PCs--often called "white box" systems because they're from companies with little-known brand names--it will include a kit of software and instructions to ease Linux installation. It's a strategy Intel has used for years with Windows."

Intel is almost as evil as Microsoft. And with their wholehearted assistance with DRM, to lock Linux out at the hardware level, among other things, they are anything but an aid to Linux. I won't even mention them treating us like pieces of crap that don't exist with their Centrino crap.
