well i did notice that it does give alot of importance that AMD and Intel are in court now but i believe that anyone that reaches the top and sees his dominance decrease will do the same thing.
as for me i believe that there should always be a big guy and a small guy since if they both become equal, it would mean the prices of AMD will go higher even if there would be more competition, since in the end you can take a look at ATI and NVIDIA, 800 dollars for a vga card is not competition. so i do believe it is in every experienced user to be able to choose his own product, and let the average joe buy an Intel. as far as i know, i'm getting the better deal.
in the end, fighting over who is right is never going to change anything since we can all go deep into our discussions and talk about the capitalist system then fall of into weird philosophical beliefs of an utopian society and the evolution of manking.
take care you guys... and take it easy.
