I was once a Mac fanatic, from the 128 all the way to the plus. Then I finally could no longer ignore the expandability of the PC. Soundcards, videocards, processors; virtually every component could be swapped for something better. I said goodbye to the Mac and went PC. It seems now that first Windows wants to lock you into one company for everything, and now Intel follows suit. I hope that much like the Windows 8 debacle, this greedy decision will kill off Intel instead. If Intel does what they are planning it would be a great time for AMD or another processor to come to the forefront. I am also praying that Linux will take its wonderful chance to become user friendly and unseat Windows.
