Sad, but long overdue. Too many missed opportunities.

I must confess to never having used a MIPS processor, instead I had leaned towards the ARM family early on. I am wondering what the IP portfolio is that would be of value to other companies. I would like to know what the analysis think was the limiting factor in the MIPS line? Was it the overall speed, performance, or cost that was the limiting factor in the "ARMs" race?
