        Is Intel going to abandon the Atom brand? Are these going to be called Celeron and Pentium? Intel's Nene recycling is totally messy and nonsense.

        I'm disappointed they aren't getting aggressive in the sub-10nm world.

        I hope AMD rises up and makes really powerful low power X64 DoCs. I would love to see subwatt really powerful X64 SoCs that can put best ARM ones into totally terrible shame (ARM SoCs sucks, with all their proprietary driver shit and slow Linux mainline support), plus full Open Source support.

            This just continues Intel's usual trend of getting out their open-source Linux support code early so it can be refined and work its way into the mainline Linux kernel, Mesa, etc, well ahead of the product's debut so there is good out-of-the-box support in Linux distributions by the time products are shipping.
            It doesn't look like that for Skylake. 10 months ago, when I bought my new PC, kernel 4.4 was barely out and it sucked big time.
