Why is it so hard to get this stuff working on AMD? Not here to bash anyone, especially developers (My day job is a developer) but why is there such poor support for AMD these days? I remember back in the day when leopard and even snow leopard ran great on AMD. I bought a laptop with an AMD A6 CPU in it and can barely even get the installer to boot, much less manage to install OSX. Not trying to bash anyone or troll. I just notice that 99% of the lower end laptops i see for sale in places like staples or best buy have AMD processors in them. Have all the developers given up on AMD?

Perhaps there is a reason for this phenomenon...

Talk about arrogance... I guess rewriting a kernel can be done by anyone.
