it is mostly correct. AMD is better for servers and Intel is more multitasking like workstations.

Amd = gaming.
For me, Intel = all. I dont notice a difference. I mean i work completely, with out lagg, and its hella fast, i mean sure there is faster, but i dont see how Amd, is gonna be so kick ass, compared to an Intel, they have the benchmarks to prove it, but ihvae used Amd before, and that one i used, actually lagged up more, when loading games.. Its more personal preference then anything.

But the thing is, what AMD are you comparing to? If you're comparing your Pentium 4 630 to a Athlon XP, then the results are obvious. So you have to be more specific, since just saying you've used AMD before is too broad.

Intel is better for multi-tasking, correct?

depends, if its single core against single core, yes Intel is better for multitasking, if its dual against dual, then AMD pull ahead.
