Seems like as long as Intel doesn't drop the ball and is able to keep doing more of the same then they will do just fine. Their "mind share" is just too strong to be overrun in the near term. And a finance background likely means the new CEO will hedge his bets and start hoarding cash like M$ has been doing for two decades.
Not great news for tech enthusiasts but not bad either. More of the same more likely.
