Just think of how much better the world would be if Intel wouldn’t have been an effective monopoly in server and desktop/laptop cpus for the past 30 years, while being absolutely shit at it for the past decade or more.

Imagine the increased prosperity that effective anti-trust would have provided. We rarely think about the cost of lax anti-trust enforcement, but it’s absolutely staggering.

@szbalint as someone who just paid far too much for some new intel hardware after the last round of intel hardware shit the bed, i definitely feel this.
