While Intel can be loved for consistently supporting their in-house products under Linux, and their Open-Source Technology Center (OTC) makes great strides at improving Linux from open-source contributions to the Mesa graphics stack to doing all sorts of kernel-level work along with major contributions to WebKit, Tizen, Wayland, and other key open-source components, they have a new blemish. It appears Intel won't be supporting their forthcoming Atom "Clover Trail" hardware under Linux.

Eric Anholt of Intel's Open-Source Technology Center had a few things to say yesterday at the 2012 GStreamer Conference about their open-source Linux graphics driver stack. Intel is aiming to hit hard on performance improvements and one of the interesting statements made is that they're now looking at moving to an LLVM-based shader compiler for a big performance win. Left 4 Dead 2 running on Mesa was also shown.
