Agree 100%. ARM is probably nice hardware, it just lacks one big thing : a standard hacker-friendly package, playing a role similar to that of the IBM PC.

Here's to hoping that it will achieve this goal. It lacks an equivalent of IBM's and Intel's backing to the PC, in my opinion, but I might be surprised in the upcoming years.
