6 claims that Theo accepted lots of $$ from AMD to say bad things about Intel. Theo denies that AMD has given him money. History tells us that Theo has never been reticent about speaking out, even if it hurts his funding (re: Darpa's $2mil grant). So, what is the kuro5hin author basing his opinions on? And why is there a Microsoft link in that page? In the comments section, someone mentioned Matt Dillon's analysis which seems to be in agreement with Theo's analysis. In fact, the only statements I've seen from Linus is only about one of the erratas, and not the others (especially nice things such as second core not obeying the NX bit and so on).
Do people just not read and analyze what others say, and blindly accept opinions? Ah, nevermind."
