Intel The Intel Developer Forum is currently in full swing, but it kicked off with a speech by Intel CEO Paul Otellini. Well, there's bad news for those of us who long for a time where lots of different architectures compete with one another, ensuring that technology is moved forward. Otellini's plans for Intel basically come down to one thing: x86 everywhere.

I believe it depends on the software.
You don't copy the sinus routine x times. You do it once and you call it with some kind of jump command. It should still take less space than the translation layer because your software will never use all routines.
Moreover, you can make better routines in software when you know what they are used for. You just need clever compilers.
