SANS - Survey on application security programs

A report in the US press said that Microsoft had attempted to bully chip giant Intel. The New York Times has reported that Bill Gates' company put pressure on chip giant Intel in 1995 to prevent it from developing software at its architecture laboratory. According to the report, the Justice Department is now investigating whether Microsoft backed up its pressure by threatening to support Intel's rivals, including AMD. The DoJ has now copies of internal memoranda and other material, the report said. In 1995, there were rifts apparent even to outsiders between Andy Grove, Intel's CEO, and Bill Gates, the CEO of Microsoft. Microsoft was making plans to develop a graphics processor code-named Talisman, which in particular attracted Intel's ire. The reports are strengthened by the fact that Intel's rival AMD and Microsoft are known to be very close. * Register ChipOid 666. In Beelzebub's demonic hierarchy, there is room for four Great Stans, one for software, one for hardware, one for chips and one for networking. We believe those companies to be Microsoft, Dell, Intel and Cisco. Compaq is not a Satan, but a hair style. ®
