The sometimes frosty relationship between Microsoft and Intel thawed
slightly today, with Intel inviting Microsoft to demonstrate its
forthcoming Windows Server 2008 during its developer forum. Hedging its
bets, however, Intel was also keen to talk up its increasing commitment
to Linux and open source.
Intel's ultra-mobile computing plans for Menlow and Moorestown continue
to advance, and the processor giant is talking up partnerships with
Ubuntu, Adobe and even Apple as it gets ready for a 2008 release of
Menlow-based devices and the eventual appearance of multi-core mobile
systems. However, its silent feud with Microsoft doesn't seem to have
cooled down much.
