They are dropping a large proportion of their prospective market right there.
They punish themselves.
Imagine a world where AMD/Motorola/IBM PPC/others do not exist. It is a
similar world to that where one operating system controls over 80% of the
home users market. Companies are willing to exclude everyone but the
monopolist, simply because it's financially viable. With that note, remember
how important the existence of AMD actually is.
