I am not a fan of children either! You have an OCN bible? Got a spare I could borrow?

I'd say this comes from the actual amd motherboards and not the cpu's in general. Until they aquired ATI all amd motherboards were made by third parties. The nforce chipset was the primary chipset used for most amd products until recently. The failure rate on nforce stuff is much higher then on an intel chipset. Since they switched to amd (ati) based mobos now, they may have a better chance of entering the business environment.

I would think it would be the other way around, if anything.

I think people still prefer Intel over AMD because they are just familiair with them, most people never got problem with their cpu's. So people are happy with intel and stay with intel, because why you want something new when you are happy with the current cpu.

Also the OEM vendors like Dell, HP,... primarily use Intel cpu's which doesn't help AMD.
Being familiar makes you loved and that is the whole point.

It's because of this


Many people still seem to think there is no thermal control on AMD, as evidenced by many of the comments on the video

PC downstairs.
10 years
Almost no cleaning, no airflow.
Still runs.
Harddrive is becoming way to slow atm, but the chip still lives.

About the youtube kid, I stopped listening at the gigabit harddrives of intel.

This right here. I can honestly say I have never seen an AMD based system for schools or businesses.
