Well I can tell you that I was an AMD fanboy until I started building high end Intel system for my clients. I was amazed with just how well they..... "just work".

Does that compute?
Agree. They really need to sort out the driver issues once and for all before people (more of them) start avoiding AMD GPU because of drivers when they have solid hardware. Llano is great (IMO) and I hope it doesn't get destroyed when it gets bulldozer cores (actually I think its piledriver going in the next revision). I may end up with a llano based laptop in a few weeks (see what boxing week sales bring).

Well, MANY moon's ago AMD box's USE to be hard to get up & going. But I am shure you know that as well that today thats definately not the case.

And well intel for MANY years worked with microsoft so thats why many times building a intel box & putting windows on it was easy.
