Through their strong partnership, both companies have optimized their respective hardware and software technologies to work together to address the demands of today's global digital economy and meet the computing requirements of businesses of all sizes.

<3 Typos =P.

But this is one of the reasons software creators like AMD. They are so much more open to working with software/os creators. Unlike intel who just makes a product and releases it. But I'd still pick up an intel processor =P.

I think this server market is what will keep AMD floating til they can get a new competative chip to the desktop segment. However when amd started out they were the Value segment of the market. If they can continue with that. They may be successful.
