Hi, everyone,
I've been contemplating about the platform for embedded solution,
before I jump into it (for the first time).

It seems to me that crusoe might just be the perfect one. Reason
being: low power consumption, no software portability problem
(well, x86). What's your opinion?

Many thanks,

Some path of my "soul searching":
1. PPC
2. ARM
3. X86
4. StrongARM
6. Intel XScale
7. Crusoe

StrongARM is a good platform, but Intel eval-kit is very expensive.
Try to use Compaq iPAQ
Enjoy !


1. More than 4Gb RAM on Intel x86 platform?

I notice that Microsoft says NT5 / Win2K DCS will support more than 4Gb RAM on a
single machine. Does this include 32-bit Intel platforms? Also, I am sure I have
heard of 8 cpu Intel boxes like the IBM Netfinity shipping with more than 4Gb

Assuming either of these is the case, how is it used? Is there some additional
address translation hardware which can be juggled instead of invoking the
swapper? Is the extra RAM used only for disc cache?
