AMD, being the shifty SOB's they have to be will happily stab both Intel and Microsoft in the back for a 15% market share. I'd bet dollars to doughnuts that any new AMD processor in the next 5 years will run Windows 7 with minor to none tweeks.
Potential employee sees startup with perceived massive growth potential. Potential employee perceived massive personal wealth increase with minimal personal risk. Employee is catastrophically wrong. Never happened before. No, never.
