FTC is talking about making Intel license x86 to anybody who wants to
pay for it. I am figuring that this is the start of a "de jure" rather
than a "de facto" standards-based x86 instruction set. AMD will have to
throw in the x64 instructions too.
So we might actually see x86 processors from Nvidia or others if this
ruling goes through.
You need to get a grip, Yousuf.
Intel must not have given enough money to Obama's campaign, but none
of this overreaching is going to fly.
