Just for fun here, what are your fav names or those you find funny? I know currently AMD uses Horse names, but what are the Intel ones about? Got a lot of them names since they switch so often to new chips!
My favs are Willamette cuz it's a funny one, Tualatin cuz it sounds cool, and Palomino is good cuz it's also my uncle's Banner company name! He does banners in Lebanon, so maybe if I asked him to call AMD and introduce the people to Athlons (they only know Intel over there, AMD is simply a three letter word for them) and tell them of his company name in conjunction to the core, it might sell! Oh well...
Oh and Katmai is cool too as a Japanese term, it'd fit well for armory names in RPGs.
The other day I heard an explosion from the other side of town.... It was a 486 booting up...
speaking of the williamette, i remember coming to THG about 3 years ago and reading about the first rumors of the willy and thinking about how unbelieveable it would be. just thought about that in contrast to my reaction when it actually came out. funny how a few years can change everything.
Hard work often pays off in time, but laziness always pays off now.
Morgan is also the name of a type of horse developed in Vermont (the only horse breed developed in America, if I remember correctly). The original Morgan Horse Farm is in Randolph, Vermont. So anyway, it goes along with the AMD horse theme of Palomino and Appaloosa.
If I had to pick a favorite, I suppose I'd go with Palomino.

how about "dong"
anyways I think Northwood is also around Intel head quarters. Or was it an area near the CEO's house? I remember reading it somewhere but can't fully remember. Oh well I guess I like Thunderbird, cars are always more than horses, just think horse power. Several hundred horse power in one car, so when I think Thunderbird versus say....Morgan I'm going to expect more power from Thunderbird. BTW what ever happened to Mustang from AMD? I remember reading about it somewhere.
