Were Intel a monopolistic compiler vendor, I might find the FTC argument regarding their compiler more compelling. Although Intel's compiler is not an unknown, it certainly does not have the dominant position in the compiler market that Intel chips have in the chip market due to competition from Microsoft, CodeGear, GNU, etc., frankly the list of popular compilers for x86-like chips is very long, and Intel's offerring, simply isn't feature-competitive with Microsoft and CodeGear in the Agile Windows application development market where most compilers are sold.
