Intel Does Not Have Any Competitive Advantages â ARM.

,----[ Quote ]
| Mr. East is sure that going forward various 
| versions of Linux will provide similar 
| experience.
| [...]
| "If you look at what's been accomplished in 18 
| months to two years and compare that to the 25 
| years of the Wintel monopoly, it's clear that 
| the consumer experience on Linux-based 
| desktops ... in a relatively short period of 
| time is catching up quickly,â said chief 
| executive officer of ARM.


Intel Not a Strong Presence on the Mobile Market, ARM CEO Claims

,----[ Quote ]
| The ARM CEO concedes to the fact that the PC 
| market is rightfully aimed at x86 chips, but 
| says that the mobile segment is still ARM's 
| territory. He also believes that versions of 
| the Linux operating system will provide an 
| experience similar to Windows, seeing how, 
| according to him, consumers aren't concerned 
| with the OS as long as the device performs 
| well and has a working, comprehensive 
| interface. 



Does OLPC have a Future in ARM Smartbook Era?

,----[ Quote ]
| Again, it seems that a smartbook derivative
| should be able to play the role of an XO in an
| educational environment. Two of the huge
| advantages of smartbooks is availability and
| economies of scale. They are planned to be
| available from a host of sales channels, most
| notably from 3G service operators at
| subsidized prices. This means, that some of
| the smartbooks will likely come at zero
| initial price, only a 2 year data contract
| will need to be signed.

| series and uses the ARMv7 architecture.
