In reply to epdm3be, ARM arent' exactly innocent when it comes to bullying people about with licencing and patent threats either. You make ARM sound like a nice little friendly couddly thing, which they're not. They're a company just like the rest. The difference is that Intel is a wee bit bigger :)

Like Spriteman says, who cares at the end of the day? All you want to do is run software to enable you to do stuff, do you really care who provides the processor on which it runs?

To satisfy moss and his "everyone has an opinion or they're just trying to show off" clause, I really think the ARM instruction set as it stands is a bit dated for desktop use. You certainly in this day and age want something with at least a few more registers in there :) But I've had this argument here already ;)
