But the Haswell platforms employ Microsoft patented technologies for video. They are Windows Only. Direct X. No OpenGL, no Linux, no Android, no BSD to fully implement to technology in these chips. Intel has finally caved to Redmond and given them their Holy Grail: an Intel platform that best only runs Windows.
Do I have to say it's not for me? OK. It's not.
Never was the icon more appropriate. I was a HUGE Intel fan, but am quick becoming apostate.
Intel, if submitting to Microsoft is what I have to do to love you, then you don't love me back.
