Hardware, Embedded Systems Netbooks are still all the rage these days, but according to Intel, this is going to change soon. The company has stated that they first thought that netbooks, who are almost exclusively powered by Intel chips, would be for emerging markets, but as it turns out, they are especially popular in Europe and North America. Intel claims that while these devices are "fine for an hour", they are not something for day to day use. And AMD? They are ignoring the market altogether.

I say x86 is a technical dead end. I don't doubt that they are sold by the billions on the PC market and stuff. I never said Intel will go down or loose money. I just said that x86 is not the way forward.
Why do you think intel and others tried to kill it?
People will continue to buy them, by billions. But what is the way forward for x86 seriously?
Anyway, whatever I say there is a communication problem that makes it so that you just can't get me. You believe x86 is the way forward, no matter how crippled it is because the "market" says so. And if someone says something else, you feel attacked and insulted.
