Intel drops plans to develop Spectre microcode for ancient chips | Ars Technica: "Intel has scaled back its plans to produce microcode updates for some of its older processors to address the "Spectre variant 2" attack. Core 2 processors are no longer scheduled to receive updates, and, while some first generation Core products have microcode updates available already, others have had their update cancelled.
I wanted to fix the worst computer bug in the history of humankind but then I realized if I don't fix it, people will buy more new CPU chips. It's a win-win situation!
