Hardware, Embedded Systems Just - just hold on a second. This is big: NVIDIA, maker of graphics accelerator chips, has just announced, during its keynote at CES, that it is developing a high-performance ARM-based processor together with ARM, targeted squarely at the desktop, server, and even high-performance computing markets. That Windows on ARM thing? NVIDIA referenced it multiple times! Update: Boom, and we have a press release. "NVIDIA announced today that it plans to build high-performance ARM based CPU cores, designed to support future products ranging from personal computers and servers to workstations and supercomputers. Known under the internal codename 'Project Denver', this initiative features an NVIDIA CPU running the ARM instruction set, which will be fully integrated on the same chip as the NVIDIA GPU."

...you can't do real work on a phone, or even a pad...

I find your lack of faith in imagination and definition of, "REAL WORK" disturbing, ;)

As someone who works daily in GIS, I welcome any change in technology that I can imagine helping to do my job more efficiently and effectively.


Also, there is a big difference between a Personal Computer (PC) and a Workstation.

I don't really think that there is a real difference anymore between PCs and Workstations, considering you can get a 4 core, 8 Gb machine with hardware raid and all that jazz for under a 1000 bucks, and just a few years ago, that was a serious workstation.

I'm not saying there isn't some real advantages for mobile computing, I'm just saying that desktops aren't going anywhere for a real long time.
