If Google is tiny in Intel's eyes, who isn't?

They operate a top 3 cloud service and have enormous internal data centers as well.




Companies that act as OEMs for enterprises most likely have a larger footprint of Intel installs than Google. Any single companies usage of a product is dwarfed by how much effective installs a large OEM might have.

Maybe if Lenovo, Toshiba, Acer, Dell, etc all asked Intel to provide said blobs (and the threat was tangible) then they would probably reconsider.
