The x86 architecture is probably one of the worst ever made, this whole segmented memory, non orthogonal ISA, register banking between the FPU and MMX, etc... while more robust and elegant design should have win based on a pure technical merit (SH, MIPS).


Please people, stop confusing ISA with microarchitecture.
