Intel The Intel Developer Forum is currently in full swing, but it kicked off with a speech by Intel CEO Paul Otellini. Well, there's bad news for those of us who long for a time where lots of different architectures compete with one another, ensuring that technology is moved forward. Otellini's plans for Intel basically come down to one thing: x86 everywhere.

Even if you were coding in asm, you would not want to touch x86 asm. x86 is a mess and is not making the life of anyone easier. It's easier to learn 10 different clean architectures and not x86 than to learn x86.
