It just depends on how big a fish you are. Intel, the big fish slapped around AMD, the minnow. Then along comes an even bigger fish and slaps around Intel. Unfortunatly for Intel there have been, and are, lots of really big fish just waiting to slap Intel around some more. It's not just the EU. Japan and South Korea have also had a shot and the US courts will soon be bending Intel over as well. I wouldn't feel too sorry for em. They will still make good CPU's and they will still make lot's and lot's of money.
