This is madness. Everyone knows a CPU manufacturer shouldn't go branching out like that. They need to stick with computers, where the money is.

Still, can't say it's a good thing. For me. Mainly because the day I'll run a Intel chip is they day they bury me in the cold cold cold(that's 3) ground, but still I can't say that I fault them. Computer componants have been dropping in profit as of late. Or at least that's what "they" tell me.

I'd tell you who "they" are, but "they" won't even tell me, so...

Average Joe doesn't keep updating his/her PC, what is the gain of upgrading between XP 1800 or 2200, oke I know some gain for "us" power users, but normal users (some textprocessing / internet / mail) with Windows or some binary-distro, don't use their raw-power, games depend more and more on the power of the videocard. having more idle time ain't that useful for most users, besides you need lots of cooling, and they produce more and more noise. Almost like having a small vacuumcleaner on all the time. Although PC won't disappear, you will get more dedicated devices, smaller / portable, more robust , cheaper, & quieter,.....

Cya lX.

my upgrade from P90 -> P266 was bigger in comparison then my upgrade from p266 -> athlon 1.2ghz thunderbird. which I would have still used if my motherboard didn't break......
