Infoworld about the Sintel Deal...

Interesting comment from Tom Yager in Don’t stick a fork in AMD:

Sun did not dump AMD; AMD will continue to supply Sun Microsystems with enterprise-grade x86 server CPUs. Sun found in Intel a cheap second source of supply for x86 microprocessors. There is a place in the market for a chipmaker that can jump the buzzword bar without actually meeting the requirements of the technology that the buzzword was meant to describe.

That´s it. The annoucement is to have an additional supplier - not to substitute a supplier - for a certain class of machines.
