At the Intel Developer Forum in Shanghai this week, the buzz was about the Atom processor, mobile Internet devices, and Linux. What wasn't buzzing? Microsoft. Welcome to the brave new world of computing sans Redmond.
Just when you thought couldn't possibly go any worse for Microsoft, it does.
it begins... the downfall of an empire
we can only hope for that to happen... but you never know, when the "Empire strikes back" :D Everything, that has a beginning... has an end.
No. I think it will just be the downfall of their monopoly. It will be good for consumers to have more choice. They are going to have to learn to share.
this isn't good for microsoft.
Just like when Microsoft dropped Intel and went with IBM for their second gaming console.
and that worked like a charm!
@3.1 I hear you :) My comment was more meant however that in business, changing partners is par for the course.
lol i know, I wasn't disagreeing with you at all!! Just stating that quiet possibly it was a horrible choice.
It is just a small warning to MS from Intel... Like MS did with Intel many years ago... Intel started looking at OS and software development... MS was not impressed - as their view was that they do everything from the metal up in the Wintel duopoly. So they made Windows NT 3.51 for RISC CPU's. Intel dropped the development... and MS dropped NT for RISC CPU's. Ten years+ later... we see Intel testing the waters again... maybe because MS is investing heavily in CPU development. Check how much IP they develop re CPU and GPU's. This is Intel's response. You develop Hardware... we support other OS... your move.
Didn't know some of that, bubbles for you
Intell or IBM, can only choose one and IBM is the top dog right now. Just ask Sony, MAC, and Microsoft. Intel you were 5 years ago, it's IBM's turn, now take a seat in the back of the bus.
Both Intel and IBM are top dogs at different things, fanboy.
Mac's have Intel at the moment, do they not?
And I said Sony, MAC, and MS. Guess your to dense to know the IBM makes The Cell. I would call you what you are but this is the gamer zone. You fight for Sony but yet you don't know who makes it's chips. That is real sad bro, kinda like raise some money for charity sad.
Cause theirs a penguin with your name on its big ol peckers. ya thats pecker like in beak what did you think i meant? If ya laughed bubble me if not step away from the - and have a nice day :D
and next thing you know MS will become past tense.
