Intel reveals its Moorestown chipset will never support Windows, as the platform was designed to run flavors of Linux.
"Moorestown was designed for low-power and small form-factors, for example, tablets and smartphones. Hence, the design decision was to use the low power interfaces for handhelds, such as low power audio, NAND for storage, etc.,” said Claudine Mangano, an Intel spokeswoman.
“Moorestown was not designed to run Windows. It is designed to run flavors of Linux, including MeeGo and Android. Oak Trail builds on Moorestown. It includes Lincroft and Langwell, and then adds in some of the legacy IO to enable Windows solutions, among others,” added Ms. Mangano.
