When I saw the first set of independent benchmark results pitting a mid-end Intel E6600 "Conroe" 2.4 GHz CPU (due next month) against the just released flagship Extreme Edition AMD FX-62 CPU, I started wondering if AMD worst nightmare was coming true. Intel's ~$250 E6600 CPU annihilated AMD's ~$1000 Extreme Edition AM2 based FX-62!

We have an interesting conversation building in the comments to my previous post about the Adobe vs. Microsoft PDF dust-up that generated a lot of attention last week. Leaving aside the true motivations either party in the brawl might have for this fluid elimination contest, the question came up about whether it is a slam dunk, done deal that third party developers are DOA when Microsoft incorporates a feature previously available only from additional software as is the case here.
