As long as there is co-dependency I do not see as these two can have a ever-lasting sepearation. LoL

Both entrenched sides flirting with what customers actually are asking for but nothing much new in real substance. That's because you don't negotiate with a tsunARMi. They'll both try to prolong the old party for as long as possible because the new one offers far smaller margins than either has been accustomed to.

"For those in the tech world it's a whole new party!" No, not really. Until MS actually builds real-world traction with Win8 nothing changes and it is the same old party. MS have been over-promising capabilities for OS releases going back forever. For example, WinFS has been promised as a compelling feature of the next gen Windows for the last 15 years. Still waiting. Perhaps it will be delivered by a Fedex guy in a flying car. While vendors certainly want to keep their options open just in case, I don't think anyone really expects MS to deliver anything worthwhile here.

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.
