Editorial I hear often that when something new appears that "competition is good". The primary reasons competition is seen as good, are: it drives down prices; it gives consumers more choice; it pushes technology forward, quicker. Competition is not good because: competition is why consumers have to choose between HD-DVD and BluRay; competition is why DRM exists; and more. In this article, each of the supposed benefits of competition will be looked at in more detail.

I think the author is a shill for the communist party. Does anybody seriously think that the competition between Intel and AMD has not been good for consumers?

There really aren't any facts or figures from any studies in his opinion piece. Are we supposed to take it on faith that reliability has gone down?

I can't believe this made it as an article for OSNews.com.
