AMD "Advanced Micro Devices has hired JPMorgan Chase & Co to explore options, which could include a potential sale, as the chipmaker struggles to find a role in an industry increasingly focused on mobile and away from traditional PCs, according to three sources familiar with the situation." Woah. Bad news for competition in the x86 space.

"Their tight control on UEFI sounds much more worrying to me."

And isn't AMD semi-supportive of OSS alternatives to UEFI? Now, that would be a nice thing for MS to kill off... ;p

MS don't need to kill OSS alternatives to UEFI: they control the UEFI spec, and they can force pretty much any mobo manufacturer to implement it through the Windows monopoly, that's more than enough.
