Intel CPU maker Intel is pressuring smaller rival Via Technologies to exit the CPU market, industry sources in Taiwan claim. In exchange, Intel will allow Via to continue making PC chipsets which use Intel's patented technology, say the sources at PC mainboard manufacturers, who do not wish to be named.

NotParker, do you spend your whole waking life thinking of ways to insult and/or put down FOSS supporters?

It is sad...very sad.

Whether you spend all day or just a few minutes, it certainly sounds like a destructive thing to do.

You are not the only one here that does it, but you do more than your fair share.

Personally, I have had enough of the bickering here...I am out permanently.

> It only takes me a few minutes each day.

A few minutes wasted are still a wasted few minutes. Would it not be better to devote them to something contructive? 10 minutes/day is 60+ hours/year. That's a work week and a half. Given 7.5 workdays, all to yourself, to accomplish something constructive, imagine what you might do.

Positive motivations enrich the spirit, while negative motivations are poison to it.

Actually, it's neither sad nor anything else. Both FOSS and closed-source supporters are given to hypocrisy and the same kinds of conflicting emotions, and many people in both communities are so ideologically-driven that they can't stand being poked by people who notice their weaknesses.

Read some Mark Twain. I think you'll be happier.
