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.

We'll see what happens with the Linux ARM smartbooks.

The fact we are talking about the possibility of x86 netbooks being completely upstaged by ARM smartbooks shows the power of a good, free, portable software stack.

I don't think brute force and loads of PR can win out here.

Intel have contributed to Linux when it has been in their interest. It's not like there is a deliberate free software strategy to side line x86.
