Yep, there was discussion about mobo chipsets that would allow it using
OpenPIC instead of APIC (sorry if I got those wrong), but basically AMD
and Cyrix are selling as many processors as they can make right now, so
why should they worry about a market that they don't need?

BTW, since Cyrix is moving production to their new parent Nat'l Semi,
IBM will be making AMD chips starting in <6 months...
