Chicken or the Egg, Intel advanced a further lead of market share, due to abusing the power as the market leader. They were the market leader long before, and still are. The shady business practices, which I disagree, thats just business offering rebates to thwart a competitor isn't shady IMO.
Regardless, the way I read the reply, was Intels shady business practices, led Intel to be Market Leader, however thats false, AMDs poor business and dev decisions led Intel to be market leader.
That said, I completely see none of this as shady. Its a welfare case, in a extremely socialist country, nothing more. They are trying to help the poor defenseless AMD, its a participation trophy for being the losing side.
All company's do this, all the time. From selecting retailers specifically, to exclusivity contracts.
Are we going to let Microsoft sue Sony because God of War is not allowed on Xbox? Or Bitspower for not allowing Mod My Mods to sell Bitspower? Do those things suck for consumers? Ya, sure they do, however that doesnt make them shady business practices, thats just business.
