“Insane Garbage” Patches Disrupt Devices

Intel Warns of Faulty Meltdown and Spectre Patches

If you thought the Meltdown and Spectre threat had passed, Intel has some bad news: don’t install their updates!

In a statement released by Intel, their EVP Neil Shenoy stated: “We recommend that OEMs, cloud service providers, system manufacturers, software vendors, and end users stop deployment…they may introduce higher than expected reboots and other unpredictable system behavior.”Users are not the only ones incredibly frustrated with Intel. Linus Torvalds, creator of Linux, expressed his displeasure with Intel.

They do literally insane things. I really don’t want to see these garbage patches just mindlessly sent out. I think we need something better than this garbage.
