BTX Standard Gradually Sees Market Adoption

"Is BTX standard dead? From all the silence, you would think so, but
that's not the case. Intel is still pushing the BTX standard as much as
it can, but unfortunately, the market isn't responding as well as Intel
thought it would. At CES 2006, case makers pointed out that the world's
largest chipmaker is working with case manufacturers and the industry to
encourage BTX, but since ATX is still the preferred standard, BTX is
having a troubling time keeping up. On the positive side of things,
however, Intel supported standard is gradually picking up."

I'm thinking the same thing; latest IBM/COMPAQ PC's are still ATX.. and then still.. dell/ibm/compaq/etc use custom cases, with custom designed HSF and custom cooling fans;

the BTX has market adoption when more than 50% of cases and motherboards in RETAIL stores are BTX conform

how many retail cases can you name of the top of your head which support BTX

/me.. only one: Coolermaster Stacker
