  1. Intel should be ashamed of itself, this is what Linus Torvalds said at the linux-kernel mailing list. Pointing out that Intel last week launched it's 64-bit processor but not even giving AMD the credit they deserve.

    Intel failed to develop a good-performing 32/64 bit chip, AMD succeeded.
    Intel licensed the tech from AMD and also got a working chip, they give AMD no cred for this.

    Intel did not license it from AMD. They reached a settlement where AMD could use x86 technology with a regular license fee whereas Intel could use all of AMD's patent without a license.

    Taken from -> AMD compatibility no problem for Intel chip

    I think the first (or at least one of the first ones) was MIPS R4000, introduced in 1991.

    Well so far, it seems that is not the case.

    That sucks. I hate Intel. Stealing credit from the real inventors.
