Discussion about Core 2 Duo Bugs

Torvalds, who used to work for microprocessor developer Transmeta, stated that the bugs in the x86 line of processors by AMD and Intel are the subject of overly exaggerated attention. He argues that all processors have bugs and that the bugs are much better documented for the commonly used desktop processors because of the large pool of developers and operating systems using them. For other speciac purpose processors, only a small group of developers is usually informed of problems.
