Good article from Andy! I disagree, though, that there will be no ARM-powered PCs. I think ARM chips would be a fantastic way to get very low-power Internet devices to put in the home.
Regardless of what Microsoft might say currently about supporting ARM as a non-tablet form factor, if the microarchitecture is sufficiently successful, I can guarantee that they'll revisit it.Nam et ipsa scientia potestas est.

Haha, the same point that I had! Good pointing out another link; thanks. I also think NVIDIA wants in on that action pretty seriously, if for no other reason than to really stick it to Intel.Nam et ipsa scientia potestas est.
