Hi All,

And by "all" I mean anyone who stubbles accross this blog and a cousin or two (hey Den).

I promised more commentary on the PA Semi deal: I heard news from a reliable source that Dan and company are going to work on a new design for Apple and it's not PowerPC and it's not x86. So you go figure it out for yourselves. It'll be 2-3 years before we'll see the fruit of this deal in an Apple product.

As for Montalvo Systems - I'd be surprised if Sun can figure our how to effectively use most of the IP. Maybe it was the team Sun wanted, but it doesn't look like many (any?) of the senior people will go to Sun. Also, the team never did deliver a product to tapeout.
