Intel's dual-core, 1.6GHz Atom Z5260 is fueling a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 tablet, as well as Asus's 6-inch Fonepad Note and 10-inch MemoPad FHD10 tablets, while Asus also unveiled a hybrid 11.6-inch Transformer Book Trio, combining an Android slate based on a 2GHz dual-core Atom Z2580 with a keyboard dock running Windows 8 on an Intel Haswell processor."

That proves my point, what you see as "effective" other people see as a "kludge." It works both ways.

Also OO is definitively not a "XXI" century technology. And the new Atoms that are going to go against ARM do support it. And they do so supporting 64bit operation as well, which ARM has yet to do. ARM has also broken a lot of software compatibility across implementations, whereas x86 has been remarkable in that regard.

We can pick and choose the good while ignoring the bad of either architecture all we want. But that simply solidifies my point: subjective qualitative assessments of technologies are silly.
