3D News, GL, DirectX Currently, NVIDIA is really missing out on the netbook market, which is dominated by all-Intel platform designs. NVIDIA has finally woken up to this reality, and the outspoken cofounder, president, and CEO of NVIDIA, Jen-Hsun Huang, has launched an all-out campaign to promote his company's Ion platform - and he isn't shy of flinging some poo to Intel and netbooks in general.

In a way, this is one of the angles that make computers "fun" again. People will go for a lookout of lightweight software, and this will benefit Linux that has lots of lightweight alternatives to run. Heavyweight flash/js websites will be hurt because they give visibly inferior user experience. Simple and elegant UI design will be valued again. Background crap will be frowned upon by normal people, not just techies.

Anything that helps Flash go away is better for the end users. If Adobe can't manage to produce cross platform Flash readers in 64bit, they can go away along with all the Flash over-saturated websites produced by lazy web developers and/or marketing oversight.
