Het vuile idee van Mikroschoft om de patch voor Win95 die de problemen met snelle K6-2 CPU's moet oplossen te verpatsen voor 35 dollar zijn mooi om zeep geholpen door AMD, die de patch nu gratis op z'n site heeft gezet.
Hier wat info van The Register:

AMD posts Windows 95/K6-2 bug fix for free
Microsoft's penny-pinching attempt to force owners of K6-2 based PCs who have experienced a bug in Windows 95 to cough up $35 for the patch has been scotched by the chip manufacturer itself.
Faced with the Great Satan of Software's apparent refusal to admit its mistake and eliminate the charge, AMD has made the fix available from its Web site free of charge.
As reported here earlier (see AMD users go through roof at $35 fix for K6-2 crash), Microsoft not only charged $35 for the patch but, according to users, didn't exactly go out of its way to point K6-2 owners to the patch's location.
Users quickly alleged the company was using the $35 charge to encourage users to migrate to Windows 98 rather than fix a glitch in 95.
