Nikos, no one (me at least!) is stating the via's the best. What i only defend, is that all have their uses, and some users come in here shoutting that they are having problems with via, and via is the fault, as if all the others were perfect, except for via!
Damn, i even saw a guy with insulting via, because of his system's crashes, and after someone said that his system was Intel, he replied "Ooops, i'm sorry!"
The fact is that, most problems here are user related. I f u go to a Intel forum, u will same the same user mistakes see here, and there, they blame Intel!
ain't it fun?!
Via is far from perfect, but, so are the others...
