Windows + ARM means perpetrating an ancient, inefficient, bloated OS even more. Today I'm running Windows 7 64 bit on a Dell T7400 / x5472 with 20G ram and... its slow and clunky and takes 2G ram just to boot. Anyone who thinks Windows on ARM is a good idea is just plain deluded.

"There is some inherent danger for the whole semiconductor industry here. What happens when no one company has the motivation and financial clout to plow through the enormously difficult tasks of delivering new chip processing technologies?" I wouldnt worry about this. TSMC is around & IBM fabclub is also around. Maybe Intel can spinoff its foundry division and form another fabclub to split the development costs :)

Win 8+ ARM= Low cost computing. 300$ CPU + 200$ OS is going to be replaced with 50$ ARM chip + 50$ OS (max possible price as Android is free & Win 7 Starter(a stripped down version) on netbooks goes for ~15$ even now)

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
