Hmm, there's something fishy about this graph charting AMD's push into Intel's server turf

If it was a duopoly they would not have to cheat with the axes... As somebody above wrote: AMD is just the noise on Intel's sales.

In a case like this I believe Tufte and others would recommend using

- a single graph showing a stack (not the best, you absolutely need to include the zero)

- two graphs stacked (ditto)

- a single graph showing AMD as a percentage of Intel sales

In principle one line is (as per the duopoly comment) redundant anyway...
