Intel Backstabs Microsoft by Abandoning Vista

,----[ Quote ]
| The news that Intel has decided it won't upgrade its PCs to Vista must be
| especially bitter for Microsoft because court documents show that Microsoft
| may have launched its ill-fated "junk PC" Vista scheme at the behest of
| Intel. Is this the kind of payback that Microsoft expected?


Intel won't touch Vista

| So that leaves two other choices, Linux and Mac. Linux is a distinct
| possibility, they already have an in-house distro that causes employees look
| nervously around the room when you talk about it. Although it is not a
| desktop variant, there is no reason that they could not roll one given two
| years.

EU thumps Intel with more anti-AMD charges

,----[ Quote ]
| It's true. The European Union has thrown a new set of anti-trust allegations
| at Intel.
| Earlier this week, rumors swirled that the EU would spring into action,
| adding charges to a European Commission investigation against Intel that's
| been going since 2001. Now the extra charges have arrived, with EU regulators
| accusing Intel of three new bits of "abusive conduct" designed to wound AMD's
| place in the x86 processor market.

It's the Year of Discovery at AMD – Discovery of Intel Irregularities, That Is

,----[ Quote ]
| Of course, South Korea isn't the only government to indict the company over
| its market dominance; in 2005, Japan ruled the silicon giant in violation of
| Japanese antitrust laws, a decision Intel declined to contest. The European
| Union is currently investigating Intel's practices — including February's
| surprise raid on the firm's German offices — as is the New York Attorney
| General's Office, which opened an investigation in January. Meanwhile, the
| U.S. Federal Trade Commission — primarily former-antitrust defense counsel
| and now-chairman Deborah Majoras, who ignored calls from Congress and fellow
| Commissioners to launch an investigation — has been reluctant to pursue the
| matter, though an "informal probe" is said to be underway.

| anti-trust body was investigating Intel and the EU Commission also had its
| eye on Intel's behaviour.



Negroponte says Intel should be "ashamed of itself"

FTC Opens Antitrust Investigation Into Intel

| which came after a lengthy JFTC investigation, saying at the time it wanted
| to avoid a protracted legal battle.
