Windows "This may be a good sign for Microsoft: a little over a day after putting its new Surface RT tablet up for pre-order, the entry-level $499 version of the tablet has sold out. Its estimated shipping time has slipped from October 26, Windows 8's release date, to a more nebulous 'within three weeks'." We'll see. Wouldn't be the first time a company artificially keeps supply short to generate 'sold-out' hype.

Plus there's more than ARM: if ARM Ltd. would start to be unbearable one way or another, MIPS for example could swoop in easily - MIPS chips are also quite popular in ~embedded (just not in mobiles; XBurst close - in tablets), and PRC even supposedly builds its tech independence on MIPS Loongson chips.
