The problem is chip based, not OS based.
Right. But there are other chips on which Linux runs, such as various
RISC chips. What currently available computers use one of these other

So all OSs are susceptible.
Not those running on chips other than Intel, AMD, or ARM.

I don't have any issues with my Alphas.

But then Alpha processors were designed by smarter engineers
than Intel's H1B clowns.

One might be surprised to find out how many of those Intel and AMD chip people
were also the ones who worked on Alpha.

Really? Those DEC/Alpha people were working for Intel in 1995?

History is amazingly resistant to left wing democrat attempts to
revise it. That's why the Soviet Union failed. Dogma lacking a
foundation will always fail.
