Torvalds Blasts Intel Over AMD 64-bit

In postings on the linux-kernal mailing list, Torvalds suggests that Intel people on the mailing list tell their managers that they should be “[expletive deleted] ashamed of themselves.Just because Intel doesn’t care about their customers and has been playing with some other 64-bit architecture that nobody wanted to use is no excuse for not giving credit to AMD for what they didwith X86-64”.

He adds, however, that he’s happy Intel “finally got with the program” but describes it as “pretty petty” not to even mention AMD in the documentation and “try to make it look like it was all their idea”.
