I really like where this is all going, from using an ARM chip in a ultra portable for the last few months (OpenPandora in my sig), even with just a 1 ghz, Coretex A8, this thing has no problem running a full desktop environment. When Tegra 3 comes out I can see this replacing a lot of low power desktops and netbooks once software is figured out.

Really software should not be a problem, but not every company is willing to port software we will probably have to stick with open source alternatives till commercial applications catch up, hopefully Windows 8 will help that happen.

On the OpenPandora I already have access to all programs I need on the desktop like Firefox, VLC, Pidgin, and that is with a user base of less then 4000, and a developer base much smaller.
