Thumbs down Intel to stop supporting Intel motherboards

"Since Intel is ramping down the motherboard business there is no plans of adding support for newer processors to the current line of boards. For new processors compatibility we recommend customers to try looking for third party manufacturers..."

Meh, there are plenty of other companies that make mobos. I think that Intel just found it unprofitable to make mobos, and decided to focus entirely on CPUs, which isn't a bad decision. I mean, not many people buy Intel boards, even tho they are usually decent boards. They don't have much renowned in mobos, and other companies can make better and cheaper ones.

Plenty of servers run intel boards. As to if there is any truth to the forum I can't say.

This is not much different than your typical motherboard that just gets old and eventually "EOL," in that, they stop adding support to them for newer CPUs ("refreshed Haswell"?). The only real difference is that this is sooner (before actual EOL), rather than later.
