    Even on the Intel page, it gives "Intel, AMD, Sharp, and Fujitsu" credit - why
    limit Sharp, and Fujitsu to "others"? (I would just take out everyone's name).

    Why not from the place that you can get the standard? http://jedec.org/

    or http://www.jedec.org/download/search/jesd68-01.pdf

    There isn't any point to pick one vendor - unless you work there, own
    stock, or one provides outstanding support (free hardware) for driver
    development. :)
