    I think the key word here is "bug-gers." Isn't the decision to ship a
    processor as marketable product more or less arbitrary? Every
    processor comes out with bugs that are "fixed" with errata. So the
    decision-maker consults some oracle to decide when the unknown mix of
    risks presented by a new processor can be guessed at as being small
    enough to justify keeping marketing department claims as credible.
    Who, other than a handful of executives with desks the size of pool
    tables, could possibly have any insight into that process?

    Robert.
