Preach on brother!
Intel is a non grata for a freedom of computing loving person as myself. As a computer hobbyist I try to stay away from paying for Intel or Microsoft products because they are anti costumer, hobbyist, and freedom. But I still love my Xbox 360 controllers and Intellimouse Explorer mice.
On top of that Intel have always been slower in everyday tasks and multitasking, Intel chips lag and stutter when you throw real work at them.
And the fact I can get a 6 core AMD for the price of an Intel dual core or 8 core for the price of Intels crippled 4 core its a no brainer that I would choose a faster AMD over a slower more expensive Intel proc any day of the week.
