Comment: Re:Intel already realized where their market is (Score 2) 113

Intel doesn't make Windows Only chips, they make cpus and it just happens that for some they gave the specs to Microsoft for support and are letting others figure it out on their own. If there is interest in Linux running on them, it'll happen when the community dives in and makes it work, just like they have with nearly every other architecture out there. Intel isn't actively blocking other OSs from the platform. Just because Intel isn't devoting manpower to Linux support for a given chip you don't have to form a lynch mob.

So... what stops WidgetCo from selling a cheaper version of the hardware sans Windows, unlocked? (Cheaper as no Windows license to pay for.)

Absolutely NOTHING.

You want Windows, you play in the sandbox just like with IOS. You don't want windows? Well good news, there is a giant freaking ecosystem of options out there, already well established. The chinese alone will guarantee copies of hardware that are wide open will always be available.
