Meanwhile, I think the real problem here is them not releasing much documentation on the problems to the public. Bugs will happen, yeah, some are pretty bad; and yeah, part of the cause of it is that they have unecessarily close deadlines (unecessarily in the sense that the world doesn't really need the next generation of processors real soon). But those are not the only reasons for a buggy hardware, it's also a matter of human limitation. It's unrealistic to think your hardware will be perfect. All in all, the intel's core 2 clearly is not prepared for some critical uses. That does not mean that you can't successfuly run it in your desktop or even some servers. You'll most likely have much more dangerous vulnerabilities in the software you're using anyway.
