Intel, Microsoft Still Tight Despite Linux Strain, Key Executive Said

Intel said its relationship with Microsoft remains strong in spite of its support for Linux and Microsoft's backing of AMD.

The two vendors, once inextricably linked as the WinTel duopoly, continue to collaborate while backing other horses.

At a dinner hosted by Intel and Red Hat at LinuxWorld Expo, for instance, one key Intel executive noted that Intel has had discussions with Red Hat
and SUSE Linux about optimizing their Linux distributions for Intel's processors even as it works with Microsoft on a host of other enhancements
including virtualization.
