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.

I'd love a quad socket quad ARM based desktop, preferably with an AMD GPU!

We really need to get real consumer products made with ARM and Linux or potentially Haiku once it gets hammered out. Laptops, desktops, tablets...

Ooo! An 18" dual quad arm laptop with SSD and ruggedized all aluminum case to cool it passively!

We have the software to back it up already, we don't need MS to bless it, just build it with consumer input like the Open Pandora project! Everyone I show the OP to has a homicidal desire to own one!
