Intel has CLEARLY engaged in anticompetitive behavior for YEARS. This is no different than M$ "owning" the OEM OS market. Everyone here will agree that M$ is anticompetitive, and has tried to squash every other OS manufacturer, and we all rejoice when they are slapped on the hand. This is the exact same situation. AMD is an amazing company, that slapped intel in the face a few years back, bringing a superior product and a lower cost. If Intel would not have choked AMD out of the OEM market, we would probably see better products from both companies today. (Intel because they were threatened, AMD because more market share = more cash for R&D). My 2 cents.
I think Intel is an awesome company. I also think AMD is amazing. There is enough in the OEM PC market to support both, so I wish they all could play nice. I teach my 4 year old to share for the good of the group, but I guess the corporate world never learned that.
FREE MARKET IS WHAT MAKES INNOVATION POSSIBLE!!!
