Barence writes “ARM chief executive Warren East has claimed that netbooks could dominate the PC market, in an exclusive interview with PC Pro. ‘Although netbooks are small today – maybe 10% of the PC market at most – we believe over the next several years that could completely change around and that could be 90% of the PC market,’ he said. East also said ARM isn’t pressuring Microsoft to include support for its processors in Windows, claiming progress in the Linux world is ‘very, very impressive.’ ‘There’s not really a huge amount of point in us knocking on Microsoft’s door,’ he said. ‘It’s really an operational decision for Microsoft to make. I don’t think there’s any major technical barriers.’”
