It will, however, suit most people who use their pc's as a browser, text editor, and music box.
How many businesses are there where PCs are mostly
used as a "browser, text editor, and music box"?
As long as businesses use PCs, Windows will dominate because of all the business related software where MS dominates. We've been seeing these predictions that Linux or MAC OS will soon rule the universe for the past fifteen years, or more, yet...
First, I never said anything about MS going away. In fact, as Intel gets more competitive with ARM, I think they are likely to stay far in the lead. You will notice, however, that Mac sales jumped with the release of the iPhone and iPad. (The unfortunately thing for MS is that I really do think a large part of their success is dependent upon Intel. ARMs are a lot cheaper, and require a lot less battery.) My comments were directed towards the concept of a phone that doubles as a "desktop computer," and those comments were o/s independent.
Second, from everything I have seen, about 90% of all business computers are used for nothing more than text editors. Sure, maybe that text is in little boxes, but very few businesses use any software that would tax a fast ARM. Based on that, a phone would happily do the job (even a modern top-of-the-line one). However, I was mostly thinking of home use, as most businesses would not let their employees take home their "computer" every night.
Heck, even PB compiles so fast that it would be "just fine" on even a modern-day mediocre
ARM! (Comparing cpu speeds, NOT cpu architecture.)
