Last time I checked, most executables reside in RAM. If “The portion of mobile RAM to global production of memory chips will rise to 30% in 2013 compared to 21% in the previous year, buoyed by strong demand from the smartphone and tablet sectors” then a Hell of a lot of IT is running on mobile thingies these days. Since Wintel is going slowly in the mobile space, this will be a huge blow to the Wintel monopoly. Probably it means the monopoly will die this year. Good. Let’s hope OEMs, retailers and consumers come to the funeral.

My MissionMy observations and opinions about IT are based on 40 years of use in science and technology and lately, in education. I like IT that is fast, cost-effective and reliable. My first use of GNU/Linux in 2001 was so remarkably better than what I had been using, I feel it is important work to share GNU/Linux with the world. Now that I'm retired I still use GNU/Linux on every computer in my home except the smartphones which run Android/Linux.
Lately, I've been giving lots of thought to the world I inherited and which I will leave to my descendants. I'm planting grass, trees, flowers and vegetables in my large lot and I've ordered a Solo EV. I plan to charge my Solo by means of a tracking solar array. Life is good if you have a purpose. I do.
