It seems that Intel is getting its act together w.r,t, low power chips; not on par with ARM just yet, but close enough that I doubt there's much of a future for Windows on ARM.

I don't think what Google is doing is wrong if they company they are going against is a puppy refuge. Your rights end at my Ethernet card. But when it's Micro "convicted illegal monopolist" soft doing the complaining makes it that much more inane.

Agreed, except that my definition of the boundary is not restricted to the Ethernet card. Caveat Emptor, regardless of monopolistic status, previous convictions and what not. Microsoft complaining is ironic, but so is Goo-"do no evil"-oogle engaging in business practices they are so vociferously condemning when it's them getting the short stick. "A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds" and all that, but this is taking things a bit too far.
