While Intel's middleware division is commited to Harmony, Intel's top brass
is pushing Wintel everywhere. And Microsoft is known for its anti-java
stance.

In fact, the whole point of .net and C# was to take mindshare away from
java, which with its cross-platform warranty, makes windows irrelevant.

So, here we have a small section of Intel funding something that the Evil
Empire of Redmondia hates with a passion.

I'd say it wouldn't be nice to make a big fuss out of Intel's involvement.
In fact, it could even backfire.

But then WTF do I know, I'm a journalist geek. ;-)
