Of course, with so much control there is a lot of responsibility, but it still sounds like a great time. I think I'm going to research ARM a bit more. One thing I wonder is whether it will eventually become 64-bit and how it will evolve as 64-bit computing becomes more popular. The NEON technology (really just Advanced SIMD according Wikipedia) supports 64-bit and 128-bit computations somewhat, but I'm curious about how well it stacks up against x86-64.
Also, I can't help wondering how well it works compared other RISC instruction sets such as MIPS. After all, MIPS comes in both 32-bit and 64-bit flavours (MIPS32 and MIPS64). So much testing/fun...so little time.

|Yes, netbooks||Ben on Mar 13, 1:11 PM|
|*MIPS is similar to ARM but I think ARM is more awesome...||on Mar 13, 2:30 PM|
