RISC was king from about the mid 1980's through about 2001 on wall
street.  RISC was just faster with number crunching than CISC.

I think the rise of CISC on wall street is related to the move from
solaris to redhat linux.  I am pretty sure this move was mostly
fostered by the take over of Sun by Oracle.  I know I got nervous with
that take over.

I think it is great that all these small arm boards and systems are
starting to compete with x86 systems.  It would be nice to see more
mips boxes as well.
