Intel to pitch in on developing Chrome

,----[ Quote ]
| Intel will work with Google on the development of its Linux-based 
| Chrome operating system for netbooks, the chipmaker's open-source 
| technology chief has said.


On Using Chromium

,----[ Quote ]
| I recently blogged about two guides on installing Chromium for 
| Ubuntu and I included links to articles that talked about the 
| proper way of installing it as well as enabling the support for 
| Flash. (Because watching videos online and playing those Flash-
| based games on Facebook and everywhere else could get so 
| addicting.) This recent experience with Chromium seems so much 
| better compared to my first attempt at installing it. (Well, they 
| did say that itâs for development purposes, and I took that chance. 
| Not inherently a bad thing.)



Intel quietly boosting its software in bid to get chips into smartphones

,----[ Quote ]
| Intel, which has long downplayed its big software-development team, is now
| coming out with a speedy Linux-based operating system â in direct competition
| to longtime partner Microsoft â in order to break into the smartphone-chip
| market.


Atomic Warfare

,----[ Quote ]
| And with Netbooks retailing under $400, compared to Microsoft Intel makes
| hardly any profit at all.  So Microsoft has to die.
| This is a huge change for Intel, which has for decades acted as Microsoftâs
| bitch, doing pretty much whatever Redmond demanded for fear of being
| written-out of the next Windows PC hardware spec in favor of AMD or even IBM.
| But that was the old Microsoft.  The Microsoft of today isnât nearly as
| powerful, whether they yet know it or not.


Analysis: Intel rides Wind River beyond the PC

,----[ Quote ]
| Intel Corp.'s acquisition of Wind River Systems Inc. is another indicator of
| the sea change occurring inside the world's biggest semiconductor makerâalong
| with the rise of Linux across all markets.
| The x86 giant is expanding beyond big custom processors for its core desktop
| PC market and into a variety of system-on-chip (SoC) designs targeting a wide
| range of mobile, consumer and embedded markets. The industry-wide shift to
| multicore processors is also driving a need for a whole new set of parallel
| software tools.


Intel buys Wind River: the End of the Wintel Duopoly?

,----[ Quote ]
| Obviously, Intel has to tread carefully here, since it can't trumpet that
| Linux side too much, but the reality is rather stronger than those neutral
| statements would suggest.
| When I interviewed Wind River's Chief Marketing Officer last year, here's
| what he said when I explored the Linux angle...


ARM netbook conscripting Moblin technology?

,----[ Quote ]
| Moblin technology may see use in ARM-based netbooks. In announcing its newly
| shipping touchscreen-equipped "Touchbook," Start-up Always Innovating said
| that "over time, in 2009," it will support "interesting projects such as
| Moblin."
