Winand? It doesn't have the ring of Wintel, does it?

I was at the Microsoft Teched conference last week and I was amazed to see the level of presence that AMD had. Entire sessions were dedicated to the AMD64 cpu's and how WinXP/2k3 64-bit will work together. Much less time was devoted to Intel's x64 cpu, which must really piss them off. They've been the big boys for so long that it has to be like sand in your jockeys to see AMD in the limelight.

But if you take a minute and look at the cpu landscape over the past few years you'll see that AMD has made incredible change, not only in their own business, but also in the whole sector of the economy.
All in all, it has been a good few years for AMD. Now they need to somehow keep the momentum going and start returning a predictable profit.
