That restriction applies only to Clover Trail models aimed at tablets, though. Intel has confirmed that another version of the chip will support both Android and Linux. The firm isn't providing specifics, but it seems Linux won't be shut out of the next-gen Atom entirely. Instead, Clover Trail looks like the victim of careful product segmentation."
