perhaps I'm a little bit off topic, but id did not found any common use forum. Which CPU (Intel or AMD) X86 should be used for developer purposes? There is a JDK which supports AMD 64 Bit, but I think it will be available for Intel soon. Should AMD or INTEL prefered? We developing J2SE and J2EE and using JBoss as our application-server in developing and production. I saw the Sun Workstations with AMD Opteron. Has anybody made some experience?
