I can't say it enough...I just wish they would admit that BD is not right at the present time and scrap it (unless they know its going to become a lot more than it is with tweaking), die shrink thuban to hold them over, and press on with their aging stars design while figuring out what to do (not keep feeding BD space heaters to the market place and destroying their reputation).
That's what I still can't understand. They knew that full well BD will be a failure, they know they can't fool the world with it. Shrinking and refining Thuban while adding couple more cores would have made me one of their supporting customers. With Intel dominating it will be (and already kins is) boring. And, of course, expensive.
