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.

These kinds of things will happen if Intel is allowed to be the only game in town.


What do you mean by "will"?

When now looking back to the 1990s and 2000s, these things have happened.

If EU is to be believed, like I do in this case, Intel has been found guilty to economic crimes that your beloved Microsoft can only dream of.

I especially "love" this part!

'PLEASE DO NOT... communicate to the regions, your team members or AMD that we are constrained to 5% AMD by pursuing the Intel agreement.'
