| And that's one area where Intel thinks it has an advantage, given the
| powerful software already available for Windows and Linux PCs. Linux,
| especially, will be an important part of Intel's strategy.

| The first UMPCs were designed in cooperation with Microsoft, with plans to
| run Windows XP and Windows Vista. But since the Spring IDF in Beijing, Intel
| has been gradually backing away from its long-time partner to tout
| Linux-based operating systems for MIDs.
