Is there any reason why so many people call the processor "Athalon"?
Is this something a non-english speaker should understand? I've
even seen advertisements using this name...
PS: I prefer AMD because they gave me data sheets for free when I
asked for those during the work on my PhD thesis. Intel wanted
$100... they were the only one of all processor manufacturers I
asked who wanted money for some documentation.
