Can't wait. I've been waiting for a long time now for this... Imagine if all your cell phones, PDA's, subnotebooks, and even eBook readers ran x86 instruction sets. I even heard recently the next version of the iPhone will ship with Atom. A full blown Windows, Linux, or OSX desktop on a tiny device is more-financially plausible now. Next stop after this: 32 nm!

Sweet, coupled with the 3G stuff that's in the works pretty soon we'll be able to have an entire computer with broadband access in our pocket for a good price.

The awesome thing is, those of us who know x86 assembly have a leg up.
