That is a bad approach still.

Time will tell. if worldwide windows phones reach even 10%, I think that'll be a major victory.. That's still a lot of phones.

I am not sure it's just a matter of changing their recipe and optimize for power. It ain't that simple. To do this, they have to depart from their core x86 belief, which they do not seem to want to do.

What about all the XP apps that failed to run in Vista and then Windows 7? Some people never left XP. Others bailed on Windows completely. But those who remained, those running Windows 7, about 1/3 the PC market, by self selection are not so attached to legacy code.

I think Windows is, and for some time has been, irrelevant. It's only market advantage is the stable of software and that runs only on Intel. Vendors will not rewrite anything but the most profitable apps (Adobe, MS Office) for ARM because it costs too much and is more a rewrite than a recompile. Look how long it took vendors to support iA64 (64 bit Windows). That was a trivial change compared to Intel vs Arm.

Maybe not. Another artice in this issue had a talking head from Intel who claimed their past preference for computing power over power efficiency was simply that, a choice. That makes sense given that, in the PC market, you could only sell your CPUs for $1000 each ("Extreme" version) if it was faster than everyone elses CPU. Now they just need to change the recipe and optimize for power consumption. Intel's foundries are at least one geometry node ahead of the ARM guys (ie TSMC). Each node increases efficiency considerably. So they ought to be able to make a better performing part at equal or even lower power.

Windows on ARM is irrelevant. The only thing that keeps Windows relevant these days is a legacy of x86 software. Lacking support for these legacy apps, Windows on ARM is pointless.

"it will be interesting to see how well it runs,” said Gold, ...people would take note if Android ran better on the Atom platform than it currently runs on ARM, adding, “there is a chance that will happen.” What makes anyone believe that it will perform 'noticebly' better? Yes there is a 'chance' but more likely it won't be noticeable.

Possibly, but not absolutely necessary. It is possible to run x86 compiled software on an x86 emulator. However that would be a lot slower and require more power.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
