BTX not as popular as Intel hoped it would be

A number of manufacturers told the Inq at Computex that they really dislike Intel's future design for PC cases, called BTX. They even draw the comparision that it is about as attractive as SARS.
A motherboard R&D engineer at Elitegroup, looked baffled as we asked him about what plans they had to implement the design, which amongst other thing is aimed at increasing the air flow over the internal chippery of a PC system, including a gas-guzzling Prescott.

"Ah BTX," he grinned finally, "No we are not interested in BTX."

"How does Intel feel about this," we inquired.

"No, it not make Intel so happy," he replied. "But we don't care".
