Intel The Intel Developer Forum is currently in full swing, but it kicked off with a speech by Intel CEO Paul Otellini. Well, there's bad news for those of us who long for a time where lots of different architectures compete with one another, ensuring that technology is moved forward. Otellini's plans for Intel basically come down to one thing: x86 everywhere.

AMD? Intel = AMD = x86 monopoly
Obviously AMD just helps Intel in their crusades against infidels.
That's sad. They have loads of money, but this is not enough. So this is their goal - grab all the money in the world and don't let others breathe.
Anyway, computing was still fun 10 years ago or so.
