I'm not bashing Intel, I own a Pentium myself, but don't you think that
creating a market segment by selling crippled 486 chips with disabled
math co
processors and calling them 486SX's so they could sell non-crippled 486
chips
with an extra pin and call them a 487's was pretty darn close to lying
to
customers about what they were buying.
