Basically, it's about the Crusoe's lower power consumption and temperatures enabling server manufacturers to put more processing power into the same amount of space than with Intel or AMD cpus. Interesting that a CPU designed for mobile applications should find its way into the server market."
That's the thing about people who think they hate computers. What they
really hate is lousy programmers.
