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.

You are right to some degree. The last Via board I had that crapped out was a 2.8 GHz P4 board. Not AMD's fault, I admit. However, how many times and how recently should I have gotten burned for it to be ok to use AMD again. I am sorry, but the sad truth (in my opinion) is that buying AMD is a crap shoot. When I buy Intel, I know that while I may pay more, I am getting parts that will last far longer than I ever have need. I still have old P3 MBs kicking around that work, although their uses are getting few and far between.
