Exactly Wale and I think this is a good sign for most of the markets including consumers, since there will be competition all around and the features will get upgraded in no time to match up its opponent.

Yep.. ARM is eating slowly. I remember somewhere mention internet companies like Facebook and some others are having there own lowcost server farms. That is these servers are cheap, easy to replace and consume less power, and of course a good candidate is using ARM processor.

There must be great opportunity in both ends of the pipe: low cost mobile processors for client based apps and super powerful processors for the host based servers managing cloud based solutions.  I would look at companies like ARM and Qualcomm to do very well.

Surely there are conflictions when it comes for industry based servers and home based servers but that wont be much of a problem since those 2 vary based on their requirements and data which needs to be handled.

Nobody likes to remain an underdog forever. This was a battle that everyone expected but most thought ARM would never be able to win. I disagree. It may not win outright but the constant nibbling on Intel market share and the desire of OEM customers for more than one source, technology advancement and lower costs will position ARM IP for more than just the mobile market.

That I get but not for 'true' server purposes. It will most likely be media server usage.

Home servers may be 'disguised' into some products such as home network storage, or some products for storing photos, music, videos to be shared throughout the house.

Yes of course. The pointer - markets are open and the game would probably be won by the best knight movers.

This has a direct link with the other so the war will definitely spread to its sub branches.

Targeting multi-task industrial applications with 16bits and 32 bits processors are other alternative to explore. Even with Internet -of - things, cyber physical systems/Real time OS and M2M massive markets are emerging for them to explore. But if looking at these areas, what about Microchip's PICs which also capturing other complex applications?
