ARM which is already leading in Smart phones, is now gaining popular on Tablets.
With Microsoft also announcing today at CES that Windows will run on ARM chips and with Google’s Android Linux, Apple’s iOS, and Canonical’s Ubuntu already on the low-powered processors, that’s a big portion of modern computing.
Throw in Red Hat Enterprise Linux and its clones from CentOS and Oracle, and you can pretty much call it a day in terms of OS coverage for ARM. Alas, today was not Intel’s lucky day, no matter how much revenues and profits it stands it get in the near-term from its new “Sandy Bridge” Core PC chips and future Xeon variants for workstations and servers. With Nvidia and Microsoft jumping into the ARM race, the future for Intel is going to get a whole lot tougher.
