Chinese Halloween with Intel

Found an interesting article over at LXer (pronounced Elexer) which posts portions of what is supposedly an internal Intel document suggesting that they will anticipate to sell hundreds of millions of Linux computers in China. From the summary at the top of the article:

LXer received a document from an anonymous source with the message "I read your article on linuxJournel about countries growing use of Linux. The attached article was posted in Intel's intranet site." It reveals that Intel expects to sell hundreds of millions of Linux-based computers in rural China. If Intel can sell a Linux computer in rural China, why can't they do the same thing in the United States?

Why not indeed.
