    Maybe, just maybe, Intel was fed up of waiting on Microsoft to drive the platform. Longhorn is an unlikely driver of hardware sales. There is not much in the way of multimedia excitement on the Windows platform as Redmond focuses on beating up on Sony in the console market. Of course, Linux isn't much good for hardware sales. If all this does is light a fire under Microsoft then that will be all that Intel requires of the deal. If Apple burns up CPU cycles with some piece of fancy software or OS then so much the better at the next Analysts'Day.
