One good thing leads to another (x86- history)
8086 ( 1978 )
286 ( 1982 )
386 ( 1985 )
486 ( 1989 )
586 ( 1993 ) - aka Pentium
PPro ( 1995 )
P2+PMMX ( 1997 ) - Dancing Intel Workers :)
P3 ( 1999 ) for intel and Athlon core for AMD
p4 ( 2000 ) bad year for intella ? AMD works on k8
Xeon( 2001 ) AMD works on k8
x86-64( 2003 ) AMD Launches Opteron / ahtlon64 also revised barton core
p3 (2004) Again!! intel is going back to p3 core in other news Amd works on dual core k9 and sells many opterons/athlon64 systems

Well yet another day . Have seen the Kill Bill 2 and can't find my words ...(great parody maybe).
Sometimes you don't make enough for the others . One of our sins : *Lazyness*. Why a day that begins great ends with mudd in the face.Tired by all of these . World hit you when feeling to good.
There will be always the fight with world but we won already that is the trick : it can't do anything with our souls.
