| How times change. A few short years ago the only OS on show at Intel's San
| Francisco developer forums was Windows, and the only place you'd see a Mac
| was two blocks away at the Apple store. Now Microsoft has been shuffled aside
| from the IDF stage to make room Mac notebooks and desktops and, perhaps more
| worrying to Redmond, Linux. Intel's ultra-mobile platform leans heavily
| towards Linux, with executives from RedHat and Cannonical appearing during
| keynotes at the last two IDFs. * * *

| further. * *
