Economies of scale

If this does happen would this mean that hp would receive volume pricing on ALL their ARM processors?

Wow, that really made my mood :-) They had a great thing going with WebOS, but... as to quote you:

As for the ARM architecture, a 64bit version will be available next year.

Ok, lets get the ball rolling.

btw, they would /should be ok for small things that up to 32bit CPU's can handle (some Atoms are 64bit!) in the server market, but seriously, 64bit is needed for ARM YESTERDAY .

Can't wait to see what unfolds. I will guesstimate that they will try some "low end" server needs and see how it goes and port software over.

As for MS, since they are going to also go ARM for Win8, I would love to think that they are also going to port their suites too, and would most likely include a "re-compile for Arm A7 or A8" or something like that. Just a module to include in their programming suite, all the programmers will need to do is just export their version for both x86 and Arm.

Those are my thoughts anyway.
