No Linux nor Android support for AMD Hondo APU at launch

A while ago we learned that AMD is working on Hondo, an APU designed to tackle the fast-growing tablet market. The Inquirer learned last week that Hondo will only support Windows 8 at launch. Linux support will arrive at a later date, and down the road they may also look at Android support, but Windows 8 is the priority.
Steve Belt, corporate VP of ultra low power products at AMD told The INQUIRER, "This is a Windows 8 product, only. We're not doing Android on this platform, at least not now. [...] It is a conscious decision not to go after Android. We think the Windows 8 space has a lot of opportunity, there's plenty of TAM [total addressable market] there for us to go at. So we don't need to spread ourselves into other markets, we think Windows 8 is a great place to start. Down the road we may look at Android, right now we're focused on Windows 8."
Sounds a lot like the Intel Clover Trail story that hit the wire on Friday, when the chip giant declared that its 32nm dual-core Atom chip will have no official Linux support.
