I agree, the whole Atom/PowerVR saga has been a complete and utter shambles, handled in the worse way possible.
If anything will be killing x86 at the low end in favour of ARM, it's not listening to your customers and offering them non-existent support. Wake up and smell the coffee, it's pouring away already...
It's rather unbelievable for a company with the resources of Intel to be unable or unwilling to provide adequate support for its own products. Netbooks are a prime target for Linux distributions, which usually are much more light-weight than other OS such as Windows.
Hi Tyler Colli ns,
I appreciate your feedback on this matter. I will make sure your comment reaches the proper department for future consideration.
