    From what I've read, these are still nonworking samples. Very much research samples, not usable code at this point. Doesn't mean it's not coming, but no need to panic yet.

    Surprised it took this long.


    You know? Part of me is starting to think that the whole thing is just a little bit convenient. PC sales are flagging because machines are just lasting longer now. OH OOPS EVERY CPU EVER MADE IS A SECURITY RISK!!


    Riiiiiiiiiight.


    I mean, not a lot I can do with a machine from 2010 or whatever. Not like anyone's going to ever release a patch for my box.
