It will be good to get an alternative processor platform to power all of our laptops and desktops. Running a full consumer-friendly OS on an embedded processor platform has been a challenge so far. The ARM processors were originally intended just to power phones and other dedicated devices.

Designing a simple user interface for the Linux-based OS that can be embraced by the mass market instead of Microsoft Windows is also a large challenge. Jerone Young is one of the main engineers at Canonical working for the past many months in trying to get Ubuntu to work 100% smoothly on the upcoming fastest ARM Processors. These types of processors will come in the thin, light (and possibly very cheap) ARM-powered laptops and desktops that will normally reach the mass market in the near future.
