Intel

+ - Some Windows 8 hardware already not compatible with Windows 7->

Submitted by Billly Gates
Billly Gates (198444) writes "This will make many Windows 7 users upset who expect to buy a new Windows 8 tablet or netbook to put Windows 7 on it. The problem is Intel's new clover Trail chipsets. Computers affected include our the Asus EEE line and some Fujitsu tablets so far.

In addition some Cedar Trail chipsets have the opposite problems of not being Windows 8 compatible. Intel executives mentioned users need to pick one or the other Intel Atom chipsets and stick with that OS. Many are blaming intel for the lack of drivers. Or could this be related to TPM 2.0 which is secretly on some new Windows 8 machines that refuse to run unsigned operating systems?"

Is it possible that software is not like anything else, that it is meant to be discarded: that the whole point is to always see it as a soap bubble?
