That is a clear attempt to circumvent the
wishes of the rightsholders to this project.
That part I believe you are missing here is that this is a balancing
act. The vendors are rightsholders too. They have knowledge we need.
Unfortunately, most of them no longer want to release it -- it's not
1999. It's all well and good to say "well sod them then" but that's
simply not an option on a large scale. I don't like it, you don't like
it, we don't like it, ... but there it is.
Could the two interested parties negotiate a compromise? In my mind that's
Google calling Intel, and they talk it over. That probably just
demonstrates how little I understand about who and what is involved.
But I ordered an HP Pavilion m6-1035dx. It appears the OEM's neglect of AMD
has meant they haven't "added features," which makes our job easy and
weakens Intel's negotiating position.
Happy to be proven wrong,
