Well, when DLink, Netgear, and Kingston all "end-of-lifed" the 21140
versions of their cards I asked them why, and this is what they told me.
So, then I asked Samsung, who use the 21143PC ( which is more expensive
than the 21140) why they did not use the 21140 on their UX Alpha
motherboards and they were told by Intel not to use it as it was out of
