I'm sure that Intel will happily let AMD do all the heavy lifting and then just license the tech when it becomes ready for prime time. If AMD can get just a couple of killer apps out of its' HSA initiative efforts they stand a decent chance to once again be the tail that wags the dog.

Comment TeX for Math (Score 5, Interesting) 300 300

When TeX was new people were not accustomed to seeing well type set documents unless they came from a legitimate publisher. I wrote several college papers in TeX and I think the presentation let me get a few mistakes past my teachers. I've not seen anything better for formulas - even today TeX documents have a more polished feel to them.
