Intel Microsoft isn't the only company in the technology industry with a monopoly. Its partner in crime, Intel, has often been accused of monopoly abuse as well, and is currently under scrutiny by the same European Commission who fined Microsoft. Sources have told eWeek (which generally has a good track record) that Intel will indeed be found guilty this week of abusing its monopoly position to stifle the competition.

I'd rather see the game being fair globally. It really pisses me off that very good companies with very good products, like AMD, suffer because of the likes of Intel.

I vote with my wallet and have been with AMD for years now, and have loved every moment of it.


Every AMD laptop so far out that I have seen ships with Broadcom wireless devices; I'd love to use an AMD based laptop but due to aligning with opensource hating companies like Broadcom, I am forced to go with Intel. Nothing has ever stopped AMD from stating that the only partners as part of their laptop platform are those who support the opensource community through the provision of hardware specifications.

So please, tell me, why should I go with AMD when AMD are their own worst enemy? Lets also remember the length of time that it took for them to finally open up the specifications to ATI graphics cards (even now the documentation isn't complete). Again, AMD is its own worst enemy - and ultimately they have no one else to blame apart from themselves.
