Intel The Intel Developer Forum is currently in full swing, but it kicked off with a speech by Intel CEO Paul Otellini.

68000 everywhere makes programmers' lives easier, and we'd all get back to programming as God intended to boot: in 32 bits. ;-)

This much is sure: x86 will not be everywhere anytime soon, at least as long as there are embedded systems.
