Everybody knew jets were going to be the big new thing, at least anyone paying attention. There were working on jets before the war started. War tends to speed up things that can bring a huge advantage.I can imagine some people who haven't been paying attention, or have been in denial about the Spec FP and Int numbers are going to be in for a heck of a shock when that happens...
I've been hearing the ARMada for so long now about how they will come to rise and corner the market. It hasn't happened. Windows was available on MIPS (and others) in the 90's. It didn't happen then either. At this point, show me a product or prototype. I'm waiting, and will keep waiting. It's not that I'm anti-ARM, I'm for what is best. Should ARM prove itself, I'd gladly cheer it on like how the US went from a 15 minute suborbital flight to landing on the moon in less than 10 years. I just don't see it yet.
