AMD breaks from Windows exclusivity, adopts Android and Chrome OS

PCWorld: After years of Windows OS exclusivity, Advanced Micro Devices is opening the door to design chips to run Google's Android and Chrome OS in PCs and tablets. AMD is expanding OS options as it designs chips based on x86 and ARM architecture, which run multiple OSes, said Lisa Su, senior vice president and general manager of global business units at AMD, in an interview at the Computex trade show in Taiwan.

Well so long as Microsoft is concentrated on Windows Phone 8, may as well keep your options open with other OSes.

Android is the best platform for chip makers nowadays since it is the dominant OS for mobile devices.

Also, intel joined the bandwagon and just released their quad core atom for Android..

Pretty bad day for MS, they are struggling to convince consumers to upgrade their existing Windows 7 to 8.. But the truth is, that OS sucks, with it's Tile UI.

More and more people are now joining the Android fever and hopefully Google will release an Android 64bit for PC.
