Hardware, Embedded Systems So, we have Intel and AMD. These guys are doing pretty well in laptops, servers, and of course desktops, but when it comes to mobile devices, they've so far been unable to adapt the x86 architecture to the stricter requirements that come with those devices. ARM, on the other hand, pretty much owns this market at this point. And you know what? It's time for Intel and AMD to get worried - really worried. ARM has just announced its Cortex-A15 MPCore chips - which will reach 2.5Ghz in quad-core configurations.

Indeed, Microsoft building a Windows Server version for small ARM blades would be an interesting first step for them. Now that you have brought it up I can't help thinking that this would likely be the first sign we could see. Physicalization is a pretty big movement in the server market these days, and relies on small and cheap machines...

Food for thought. It certainly is more fun discussing Microsoft these days when they aren't quite the evil juggernaut they once were ;)
