muwahahha

in addition, mocrosoft has told intel they are NOT making two different ports, so the intel chip has to look exactly like the amds as far as the os is concerned...NOT going to be propriatory...tee hee

something else pretty darned ironic I've found out from those involved...the section qualifier for .inf files on the amd64 platform is... ".amd64" or ".NTamd64". Intel's are gonna love writing .inf files for those sections aren't they!!

Optional responses by Intel

1). Linux looks really good to us. Let's throw our entire support behind it for adoption for all business desktops.

2). Hmmm, sounds like a Monopolistic action to me. Now where is that DOJ phone number.

3). "No" is just an opening to negotiations.
---How much will a separate port cost us?
---And how much more for you to discontinue the AMD64 version?

all intel has to do is license the x86-64 instruction set... thats not too difficult..

amd has been licensing SSE and now SSE2 with its a64 cpus... its only fair that since amd took the lead here... intel follows suit :D although the 600lb gorilla's pen0s will be sore from the kick in the nuts it received... :cool:

AMD's a stopp'n right now! I am sure Intel will once again stir a frenzy... ...welcome to the world of PC hardware. Wait till diamonds are used in processors for the masses... all instructions occure at light speed.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
