AMD's Hondo will only support Windows 8 at launch.
The target of MS's exclusion unsurprisingly appears to be Android: "However unlike Intel, Belt said AMD's software engineers are working on Linux support, though that doesn't necessarily mean Android."
There is some hope that the MS strategy of buying market share by payments to Intel and AMD will be no more effective than with Nokia, especially as chip companies are unlikely to buy into the MS vision in the way Elop has at Nokia. However, the pollution of computing devices on which Linux can't be installed or won't work well will remain.
