You have to admit, Intel has made a lot of bad and ugly business moves lately, [content edited], they have the fastest chip, sure, but they cant move the damned thing outside of the enthusiest market. yeah, intel has some smart engineers, bud some very stupid business people

Again, just because there are *some* bad apples, does not mean the *whole tree* is bad.

I didnt say the whole tree was bad, just the roots

the business(persons) make iup the roots and trunk, the engineers are leaves.

the leaves feed the roots and trunk by providing a source of income, if the oots are bad, the leaves cannot hold up the tree, that tree is going down.

now, I havnt seen intel make a sound business decision in 3 years, heck, look at their stockpiles of old Pentium4s and PentiumDs, they stockpiled so much that all that idle inventory will eventually have to be written off, and intel is going to take a huge loss becuase of that.

i agree.

intel needs businessmen or engineers running things..
not marketers who cannot seem to market their way out of anything.

they start a price war and end up with less marketshare and MORE inventory and 10,000+ layoffs and selling of business divisions..
why are they still pumping out pentiums?
C2D will only be 25% of their output at year end.

seriously, if they were smart, they would have not priced C2D lower than crappy pentiums. Of course their inventory is going to pile up

"Optimized" is an overhyped word. How many games you know than in the box had a "Runs better on Pentium 4" logo yet an Athlon 64 kicked its rear? Considering the whole bunch of resources than Windows Vista consumes, I don't think that they did general code optimizations, rarer yet compiling for an specific architecture.

That's a very good point... Usually when a little sticker shows up on something saying "optimized for something else" it's evidence more of some kind of marketing deal than any other thing. That's not to say the deal won't be important for the companies involved, but it's not the best indicator of what kind of technical bits are in there.
