This seems to be a deliberate strategy from intel (or perhaps just a
meaningless coincidence); at the high-performance computing asia
conference last year there was a very knowledgable guy from Intel there
(Tim Mattson) who was saying very smart things, _except_ on (at least)
two occasions he said [paraphrasing] "... Windows NT will become the
primary development platform for HPC applications" Needless to say,
everyone in the room blinked.
If intel are pushing WNT at both extremes, I wonder what they envisage for
linux in the desktop? And what leverage is M$ using that makes intel push NT?
