Intel "Imad Sousou is the director of Intel's Open Source Technology Centre, which is behind the Moblin project aimed at providing optimized Linux technology for netbooks and mobile Internet devices. ZDNet Asia's sister site ZDNet UK caught up with Sousou at the Open Source In Mobile 09 event in Amsterdam last month to discuss the nature of Moblin and the hardware on which it will run." The interview also covers Intel's views on the netbook and MID market, Windows 7, ARM as a competitor, and Google's Chrome OS and how Intel is working with Google.

I think the point that was trying to be made is that the Internet, at least since the early 90's, has had ever increasing requirements. The "web" has had an ever increasing need for speed to display its contents. The early "pure text" Internet didn't require much of a computer, but if you tried to use an old Commodore 64 to browse the web today you'd be very disappointed, for instance.

While I'm sure Intel would love people to think exclusively "Intel x86" when they think PC, those days are over. These days, a PC refers to just about any sufficiently powerful, general purpose personal computer. Phones, PDA's, even MP3 players and other devices, are all becoming more and more like general purpose PC's.
