For all those 2D-only people, there's VIA and SiS. Where I live (India), all state departments run AMD Athlon XP chips on a VIA KM400.
Now that's over 4 million PCs running VIA.
The sole reason why VIA hasn't yet come up with a mid/high end chipset for AMD is this.
The market price of a surplus Athlon XP 3200+ (Barton core) in India: $15.
