Hardware, Embedded Systems So, we have Intel and AMD. These guys are doing pretty well in laptops, servers, and of course desktops, but when it comes to mobile devices, they've so far been unable to adapt the x86 architecture to the stricter requirements that come with those devices. ARM, on the other hand, pretty much owns this market at this point. And you know what? It's time for Intel and AMD to get worried - really worried. ARM has just announced its Cortex-A15 MPCore chips - which will reach 2.5Ghz in quad-core configurations.

This to me just raises the question: what will Microsoft do? Sure, they have had a good run on the desktop and even on servers but that was all during the x86 days. True MS does have Mobile/CE, but will they be able to scale that up to a server platform? All I know is that MS will need to come up with a solid plan in order to compete in the very near future.
