Intel Theo de Raadt wrote about the Intel Core 2 Duo chip: "Various developers are busy implementing workarounds for serious bugs in Intel's Core 2 cpu. These processors are buggy as hell, and some of these bugs don't just cause development/debugging problems, but will assuredly be exploitable from userland code." Intel has given a response to the concerns as well.

I believe the poster prior to you was exaggerating for effect. The old adage "don't bite the hand that feeds you" is VERY true.

If you think being polite, courteous, and tactful equates to having no spine, then I am truly sorry for you. Theo would get a lot further if he didn't speak everything as if he had just swallowed a liter or vinegar.

Demanding a company open up something to you when you've already been at odds with them concerning other issues isn't going to work. Only a fool would go that route. I think Theo should just relegate himself to a dark room somewhere he could code, and hire a PR guy to handle interaction with people/businesses. He could really use the help, and it would be a boon for the OpenBSD community.
