And, as history almost *always* indicates, Intel will win. EMT was an
abhorration.

I'm not so sure that's true. Sooner or later, every monopoly gets toppled,
and AMD has made some very surprising progress in the battle against Intel.
Do they have enough of a foothold to stay? I'm not sure, but I don't think
they're through yet.

I was amused by "abhorration", which seems like it should be a word, but
unfortunately is not. The word you were reaching for is "aberration".

Are you sure he wasn't reaching for "abhorrence" from "aberration"? I'm
sure Intel spent too much money and invested too many man hours for EMT to
be an aberration. However, it was definately abhorrent to a huge industry
invested in x86.

There are two battles, quite different. Intel x86 vs. other x86,
in which no-one apart from AMD has been able to get Intel to
suffer from more than a little chaffing. Secondly there's Intel x86
vs. all other architectures, which has been far less aggressive,
and slower moving. The other big boys had or have their niche,
but many of them gave ground to AMD. Historically Intel are fairly
solid in their position. Funnily enough, AMD doing well in the
inter-nicene x86 battle probably helps Intel maintain their strong
x86 vs. other architectures position.

I was amused by "abhorration", which seems like it should be a word, but

I preferred mapping it onto "abhorrence".

Horriffic is now used so frequently that it might as well be considered a word.
Abhorration may follow the path of horriffic.--

I think it's a perfectly cromulent word.

Let's hope *Microsoft's* monopoly gets toppled soon.
