Pass the blame but don't blame me. Just close your eyes and count to three.

This **** show has longer to run. There is still more to know. We are going to see a divide between the patched and unpatched. Many Linux servers go unpatched, IoT never get patched. You can guarantee that MS will only patch Windows 10. Leaving a little over half the Windows install base still on Windows 7 with their asses hanging out. There will be those that refuse to patch or don't. As I said this is a *** show.

If this is Intel only and at some point willful negligence can be proven the lawyers are going to be really busy.

No you actually can't, Windows 7 and newer still receive security patches, and will continue to do so until January 2020.

That one wasn't even that bad. Nvidia had that problem too just less so. I mean it wasn't like it was a security flaw. It was just a flaw of software as a whole since basically everything was being brute forced with mGPU which has it's drawbacks.
