It's a lot like AMD versus Intel; AMD was definitely underappreciated 
until Intel started actively blowing it and there was no alternative.

I hope they come up with a GX-capable HardCopy soon.  HardCopy is just 
freggin' impressive; it enables a whole new kind of flow.  Cyclone II 
has pushed FPGAs in a price band where they have never been before (and 
forced Xilinx to follow.)
