Furthering their war against Intel
is now having Microsoft
subpoenaed, requesting for documents that may relate to the anti-trust case against Intel. This time around, AMD is looking for evidence
that development of code for 64-bit desktop processors, and how Microsoft viewed both the market and the differences between Intel and AMD offerings. What do they hope do find? A smoking gun might be hard to find, and some might wonder why AMD is pursuing this, since Microsoft initially supported the AMD64 architecture over Intel's. However, that doesn't mean that the delays in releasing Windows XP 64-bit didn't involve Intel somehow. As a user, I just want my stuff to work – I don't care about conspiracies. It'll be a relief for everyone when this is finished.
