I'm not a fan of x86 on any level, I hate windows, and here I am sat writing this on a x86 PC running windows *sobs*. But the last time I drueld over an RISC OS machine was 93', now Opteron's configured in a NUMA archetecture under the hood of a PC wettens the corners of my mouth.

It took a bunch of graduates with big ideas and a large injection of money to push Acorn to the head of the game, if for a brief while. Mabie the opertunity will come by again, but will we catch it and run with it, or will it just get swalloed up into the huge uguly Windows (tm) world.

Linux gave me hope for a while, but there's very little inovation going on, everyone is trying so hard to make it mainstream, user friendly, etc... it's turning into a free version of windows :/
