Duuuh! If Cyrix used this info they would lose any court case.
That was my point. Sure we can use what we want, and even reverse
engineer stuff...the big boys don't care about us (yet). It is an
entirely a different matter when a billion dollar company steals the
secrets of another.

I don't know why this thread has gone on so long: The Cyrix processor cannot
run 100% of Pentium code. Case closed - Next case please!
