    I'd say the most successful additions to x86 were the 64 bit extensions. Too bad those were created by AMD.

    Shouldn't they be celebrating 39 years of the 8086, I thought it was available in 1978?

    Edit: ... and it was a piece of crud, released just a year before the lovely 68000, as a stopgap for the even worse i432. I would have thought they would be quiet about that, I don't like to remember those dreadful early x86 machines.

    I think the fact that they've had a monopoly of the x86 licence for 40 years is probably long enough. If they go to court there's every chance that qualcomm will counter-litigate especially seeing as the x86 patent itself expired 20 years ago. That's why intel keep patenting "New Instructions" they just want to maintain their monopoly of the x86 technology licence.
