Why are we using Windows?  Why are most user interfaces so bad?  Why do
we use Intel CPUs?

I was hoping that AMD would get brave, and release a CPU based on their
RISC cores.

I still don't understand the term "IA-64", because I thought the Itanic
and the AMD x86-64 CPU were radically different beasts.
