"AMD registered 35.8 percent share of all retail systems sold in
September, followed by the Intel Pentium II and Intel Celeron with 28.2
percent and 9.6 percent respectively, the report said."
"For low-cost PCs, AMD's K6-2 is becoming the chip of choice, garnering
68 percent share of sales for sub-$1,000 PCs, with Intel making up 16.2
percent and Cyrix making up 15.6 percent."

And Linux runs fine on K5, K6 (a few K6 200mhz's have a problem seeing
over 48mb of ram under linux), K6-2, probably even K7.
Intel doesn't matter anymore, why do you think Grove left?
