    I decided a year or two ago that from now on all my computers are gonna Intel unless AMD really gets their act together in a massive way-- which i don't see happening anytime soon.

    I switched to Intel when I became aware of a blob required to get 3D acceleration to work with Ati cards.

    Now that the performance issues has been solved for my needs I could not be more happy Intel customer.

    Uhm, your Intel cpu still has a microcode blob inside it, that you can update at runtime.
