Hmmm, real world apps on an OS that doesn't suck use it, but then again, that OS isn't one of the evil monopolies, so I guess that doesn't count either (linux).
Did you ever stop to wonder why this is? Is it perhaps that intel has been paying off everyone for the last 20 years? During the K7 generation AMD had about 27% market share. It was a very strong CPU, but the athlon 64 was even better and what happened? They LOST market share all the way down to about 15%. Intel doesn't play games. They lie, cheat, bribe, steal, threaten and strong arm anyone in there way. That lawsuit pay out was a joke and so are the results. Almost nothing has changed.
It's true, AMD doesn't help themselves by their position with software devs, but intel actively makes their compiler cripple AMD chips and then pays devs where appropriate to make their CPU look massively better, regardless of its actual perfromance (tons of synthetic benchmarks that are used my the masses). Anywhere you see their logo plastered has effectively been bought.
