All Intel has said is:
In an e-mail from an Intel spokesperson, Intel said, "Intel has plans for another version of this platform directed at Linux/Android; however we are not commenting on the platform specifics or market segments at this time. Stay tuned.”
The rest of the article is pure speculation and misinterpretation as usual for zdnet.
What exactly do they mean by another version of this platform ? Is it another version of Clover Trail, or is it going to be called something else ?
I don't see where it says that Clover Trail will Support Linux. All they say is that another version of it will support Android, and will probably be locked-in. Linux support is in no way implied. Now, of course, probably independent developers may hack something that will work, but I don't see official support yet.
