Game changers that show up in life often do not show up in the way and the when we expect them. That often leads us to not accuracy see them for what they are. This is going to be a year of game changing in 2012, and most of us do not yet see it.
One company we can thank for the change is, Microsoft. Windows 8 will be out sometime this year. You won’t have to touch it to feel its impact. The Redmond, WA company put a muzzle in the mouth of its marketing department about its bottom of the barrel Hyper-V a few years ago and quietly improved the code.
They will make it a standard feature in Windows 8 (NT V.6.2). Keep in mind they have added ARM CPU support to this NT version. We can get devices with multiple ARM in a single package in several smartphones and tablets now. This means…
Virtual Machines will be something your mom will be using, if not knowing it. VM usage is about to become so commonplace the next generation of ARM chips will have what I call 2 and a half CPUs. 2 of them are real bit busters. The ‘½’ CPU will stay alive while the other 2 are OFF. It will perform functions in a low power state, extending battery life.
