Not really... BSD, especially freeBSD is the operating system focused on security. They basically wrote a work around to help make sure the results are truly random.

A company called "free Blue Screen of Death" doesnt like Intel? What?.

It's kind of funny. The FOSS community makes a big deal about trustworthy, open code, but it's all for nothing if you can't even trust the hardware to run your code as you intended.

Don't really see how this affects Intel in the slightest. Crypto won't trust their hardware-based random number generator to truly be random, okay, but it's not as if won't still run on their chips.

All they are going to do is use a different way of generating random numbers, Intel might just see some shift of their sales from enterprise CPU's down to consumer end.

Not a big deal in reality.
