The Wayland Engineering Team At Intel
Phoronix: The Wayland Engineering Team At Intel
With Intel effectively dropping MeeGo and is investing in the Tizen project instead, many have likely been wondering what's happening with Intel's Wayland situation. After all, Intel had planned to use Wayland on MeeGo Tablet UX this calendar year and they have several developers devoted to this free software project...
You pretty much summed up many of my thoughts.
Atom is a long way from a tablet CPU. Maybe at 22nm but even then I suspect that ARM will out perform it on a 28 or 32nm node. As you note the NiH syndrome is in full force, Atom simply supports to much legacy functionality to be worthwhile.

I don't want to advocate corporations giving up on Linux but it is pretty clear that nobody at Intel has much of a vision when it comes to OS's. Maybe that is why we hear about the rumors Intel will pick up WebOS. Frankly though I suspect they would screw that up in a few months also.
