Re: Way to go Intel!

Yeah, totally new.

It's not like Intel endeared themselves to use with the FDIV (aka approximation bug) or F00F bug, for starters.

I could also rattle off many, many other hardware bugs, from various vendors, from old '286 BIOS bugs onward, but it'd be encyclopedic. Going back to things like Award BIOS in 32 and 64 GB hard drive handling, where WD software and the BIOS poorly handled things, resulting in trashed WD hard drives.
