Finally... Intel is going to sell WR after 9 yrs.

WR is owning the SIMICS simulation software, which is leveraged during pre-silicon UEFI development. Anyone knows the impact to UEFI development model of this acquisition?

My guess is the price of SIMICS license will go up ;)

Hmm... Hope this won’t change the original development model, or else it will lead to waste of effort.

Simics license price is high, not all companies are willing to afford. :D

I thought WR will have to sustain the same rate to retain the customers since SIMICS is not a must.
