History is not on your side. Intel will likely be very successful, and for a time we'll have more powerful, more power-efficient, more-inexpensive chips in our phones and tablets. That is only a good thing, right?

Give it a few years, and it might be 5% of apps don't work on ARM-based laptops and tablets. Fragmentation has always been a side-effect of technological advancement. Besides, why would you want a monoculture in the tablet market? Monocultures hardly breed innovation.

Also, it is hardly life-or-death for Intel, as there are still a whole lot of buyers of laptops, desktops, workstations, servers, and super computers. This is not going to change as long as real work needs to be done.
