Today in Cleantech

The Wall Street Journal has a lengthy breakdown of the relationships between Microsoft,  and ARM and Intel in today’s paper, particularly as Steve Ballmer is slated to give what many believe will be his last keynote at CES. There’s nothing mindblowing in the article, though the most important issue may really be that the mainstream press is now starting to ask the question of how far ARM can move up the stack. The WSJ points out that Gartner projects the PC market to actually contract 1 percent this year and with the next Windows build, Windows 8, supporting ARM, it’ll be interesting to see if we see ARM ultrabooks. Because if we do, and we start to see more applications built for ARM laptops, then I think the code environment will change at the server level, making it easier for ARM’s low power chips to crack the data center.
