Comment: Re:Why such negative attitude towards Intel? (Score 1) 720

Hey aussersterne,

You're right. What pisses me off about this kind of thing is that the larger (ie: more entrenched, richer) company usually wins the battle of public opinion and gets credit for the invention, through sheer reppitition and drowning out the truth. Years later few, if any, remember the true version of what happened.

For example, the upcoming Star Wars DVD's. Lucasfilm will promote them endlessly and millions of kids will watch the films, not knowing that they are bastardized versions of the original theatrical release.

I wish there were a hong-kong knock-off of a laserdisc version of the original 3 films. I might pay good money or trade software for a copy, if only I knew someone who had such a set of DVDs. (sigh) oh well.
