FTC: Intel's no Microsoft

— 12:57 AM on September 27, 2000

The Federal Trade Commission has finally decided to close its investigation into Intel's business practices. Now whether or not Intel has been a good little boy, the company sure handled the government in a much savvier way than did Microsoft. MS's clumsy defiance ("Your simple brains cannot comprehened our complex browser technology!") just provoked the government lawyers, while Intel's quiet cooperation with the FTC seems to have soothed the trustbuster's fears. Of course, Microsoft was busy stomping on Netcapse's corpse the whole time, while Intel bumbled its way into losing its technology lead in its core market.

...or was it all a masterful ploy? Will Intel crush AMD like bug now that the FTC is off its back?

Yeah, right.
