[Brett Sherman] "Boxx and Promax require others to manufacture motherboards. So if those companies find it unprofitable to make motherboards then they are SOL."

You can make that argument for any electronics integrator or manufacturer. Every electronic device you own has dependencies on suppliers somewhere down the chain.

[Brett Sherman] "SuperMicro makes motherboards but they require Intel to make the chipsets."

To make Intel compatible motherboards, yes (obviously). But they also make AMD compatible motherboards. Would it surprise you to know that neither Intel or Supermicro makes every component in their system boards?

[Brett Sherman] "The point is that that one company cannot control what happens in the entire industry."

Sorry, I don't follow... I don't think anyone was making that case, unless I missed something.
