Interesting developments taking place....

Scenario....You're in the middle of an important letter, maybe on a plane, and the battery indicator shows low, so you save your work, and shutdown/transfer to your the word processor in your ARM based OS - IN THE SAME LAPTOP/DEVICE
- The energy savings of the ARM processor give you an extra hour of battery use, allowing finishing the letter, emailing it, and having a quick chat to confirm you'll be arriving soon....

Interested? 2 options -

Semi-sadly Android powered, until PuppyARM gets sorted

Meanwhile, more Open Source ARM devices are getting predicted for near roll-out

There will hopefully be more progress thanks to Adobe - Flash is being open sourced - YAY [Microshaft are appparently upset...boo hoo]

If you have an ARM development board check these Kernel/U-boot and GCC tools
