Hmm, XScale-based desktops, never heard of them, I have seen plenty of
XScale-based pda's but then thats not a desktop. What I meant to say was
effectively all new desktop systems shipped by 2007 will be amd64 based,
of course apple will still be alive shipping their 2% of the market ppc
based systems. Of course there will likely be developer systems for
large sums of money running other archs like XScale as there is today,
but that can't really be considered a normal desktop system. ;)
