I might have one: What does stop a motherboard-vendor from just buying
a CPU and implementing it? Which chips, beside the CPU, do you need
from Intel in any case to make the machine work?
I always thought of the CPU just as a machine executing code, and
assumed it's possible to use it just as any microcontroller: You can
add the ME-Chipset, but you don't have to.
