Quotes on the x86

I found these and the first one is a real gem.

At the same time, I moved my old quotes page from my old home page to the blog.

enjoy…

“The x86 isn’t all that complex—it just doesn’t make a lot of sense.”

— Mike Johnson, Leader of 80×86 Design at AMD, Microprocessor Report (1994)

“The complexity of the x86 is not an impassable barrier….The biggest weakness in the x86 instruction set is the lack of registers coupled with an extremely painful addressing scheme.”

— Mike Johnson, Leader of 80×86 Design at AMD, Microprocessor Report (1994)
