Re: Intel "shouldn't be selling CPUs?"
Even if it can be fixed via software?
It can't. At best it can be mitigated, not fixed. Now I'm not suggesting that Intel stops producing processors, more that they be a lot more open about the effects of the bugs and their plans to fix it.
The same holds (to a lesser extent) for the other processor manufacturers and OS vendors.
And best of all, stop producing patches that make machines unstable or non-bootable.
