    Wallis doesn't understand about virtual machines ...

    and how the increasing power of modern processors are leading the way to irrelevancy of the underlying CPU architecture.

    x86 monopoly --- RIP.

    You had the world by the bawls of your crappy architecture for 3 decades. Now you're just on the slow glide path of Ma Bell.

    Boo Yah, Wallis et Al!

    • Lucy, you really need a strategy other than machine-gunning the board with new user IDs and the same old drivel.

      As far as your comment about "the increasing power of modern processors are leading the way to irrelevancy of the underlying CPU architecture", it's just another example of you and the other lucies not knowing enough about technology to be dangerous.

      The increasing power of multi-threaded processors is all coming from Intel - whose x86 architecture you then try to trash.

      You clearly don't know enough about it to put out more than two lines of trash talking.

      The idea that a "modern processor" can be de-coupled from its underlying CPU architecture is laugh out loud funny.

      Just more reasons why you'll never be the master of anything other than the massive generation of new and stupidly named user IDs. If you had a backbone (or an argument), you wouldn't be hiding behind a new user name every single day...

        Is that right Wallis? Is that why Intel had to bribe Dell not to use AMD processors when they were the only dual core game in town? I guess Dell's customers were happy with HT on the Pentium and didn't see any need for the real thing.

        I know you'd like to ignore reality since it doesn't jibe with your decidedly WRONG predictions of INTC price per share, but virtual machine technology (as in the form of the JVM or .Net) renders the underlying instruction set irrelevant, so the comment in the article you linked about "recompiling" is not going to matter except for legacy applications dependent on native code, and those are dying out as software developers embrace portable platforms.

        Multicore (which was NOT an Intel development) is not restricted to x86 architecture. The only thing that's been keeping Intel in the driver's seat with x86 this long is the lock that Windows x86 exclusivity had on the market. Sorry, but no matter how much you whine about it, that lock is in the process of being broken.

        You've been pumping and pumping since last spring when INTC was 24+. Not working out too well for you, eh?
