Never count Intel out but ARM keeps gaining momentum and Msoft support won't hurt.

ARM is having a good time. The firing of the Intel VP is related to this.

Intel forecasted end of the current mobile computing paradigm: http://www.physorg.com/news/2011-07-intel-death-mobile.html ARM should be well-suited for future generations of cloud-linked devices.

Intel should not much worry about low end, low margin 25% of laptop market. Intel should look for high end, better margin mobile devices and tablet products.

Yeah, and Itanium was going to rule the world because Microsoft Windows Server ran on it.

IMO the competitive advantage of Intel in process,with 3D transistors, will be soon matched by TSMC or IBM fab club. So the competition will essentially boil down to power consumption/performance/price. In price Intel can noway match ARM, without seriously hurting their current margins. A mid end notebook cpu from Intel sells for 100-200 $ while a topend ARM CPU from nVidia/Qualcomm sells for like 30 $. Performance of ARM will gradually increase enough to be able to execute most computing tasks and people will have less reasons to pay for an Intel CPU.
