As does Gigabyte, DFI, and AOpen.

Intel apparently has not yet released any mobos, but they list 3 Gigabyte and two Foxconns on their website here.

Speak for yourself. I am looking forward to a CPU that blows all previous processors in all categories out of the water while producing much less heat and consuming much less power in the process. That's a win win win as far as I am concerned. A win for Intel, a win for the consumer, and a win for competition.

I am sorry if they burst your AMD bubble but that's life. And it does not matter to me who did it - If it was AMD, Motorola, Intel, whatever - as long as it gives me, the consumer more options - getting emotionally attached to a brand is senseless.
