Re: Ya think?

Sure but as far as the OS, whatever new may come, it needs to be compatible with all the existing ones. Else what chance can it seriously have? As far as application software, well if the OS is compatible...

The PCI fight has been going on since the late 90's (That's just what I know of it). I thought that IBM was part creator of PCI, but the moment it took off they seemed to walk away after the words "IBM compatible" were uttered. Again, I could be wrong as I never really followed this debate, but surely somebody can come up with something faster than 2 or 4 or whatever channels we have rammed into our way of thinking.

P.S. I only posted because I read Intel and Google weren't in full favor of this project, so it must be good!
