I really like the ARM architecture.

ARM began when two engineers, Steve Furber and Sophie Wilson (formerly Roger Wilson), at the British company Acorn Computers Ltd, decided to design their own processor.

BTW, I came across a great beginners intro to writing a small OS in ARM assembly for the ARM based 35 dollar Raspberry Pi computer.(Cambridge University)

I, too, am a fan of the ARM architecture. And them incorporating proven supercomputer techniques like non-uniform memory access (NUMA) into multi-core products shows they know what they’re doing. The Megahertz race is over; power consumption killed that. Now, it’s cores and more cores, and techniques to make them viable.
