Intel’s acquisition of Windriver – no comment

Just reading some news about Intel’s acquisition of Wind River Systems.  I won’t comment on what I think of the acquisition, but I think the article referenced below from Ars Technica is spot on.  Also the quote below that is one of the funniest I have seen from a technical journal. :-)   You’ll have to read the article to get context.
