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.

This much is sure: x86 will not be everywhere anytime soon, at least as long as there are embedded systems.


Aren't 80386 and 80486 still used quite a bit in the embedded and machine control industries?
