Re: greater popularity of Debian on AMD64?

The statement was not about AMD but about the architecture amd64,
which is also used by other processor manufacturers, namely Intel.
For years, Intel had their 'i' in i386. They missed the wagon on
consumer 64-bit architectures and only jumped on after amd64 had
been well established.

But I agree, to the uwashed masses, the statement might sound
a little too much in favour of AMD. Nothing we can do about it now.
