Intel not worried about ARM, compares it to Transmeta and VIA

In a recent interview, Intel CEO Paul Otellini revealed that his company isn't too worried about the rise of ARM. He said that Intel-based Windows 8 systems have the advantage of being able to run all software written for past versions of Windows, and added that many basic applications don't run on ARM-based Windows RT devices. Otellini also stated chipmakers come and go, comparing ARM to companies like Transmeta and VIA.
The world’s largest chipmaker seems confident in the outcome. Chief executive of the company compares ARM partners to companies like Transmeta (which designed ULP x86-compatible chips, but eventually went bankrupt) or Via Technologies (which offered low-power low-cost chips, but also failed to gain market share) and reckons that Intel's CPUs are the best and are getting better quicker than everything else.

“I happen to be around long enough to remember those guys. People come and go, and we have never had an exclusive, if you will. And, overall, the best chip has won,” stressed Mr. Otellini.
