      A bit off-topic, but the legal battles between Lexra/MIPS and
      picoTurbo/ARM have both ended with a complete defeat of the
      two cpu-clonig companies (Lexra and picoTurbo). Both companies
      have been shut-down and their clients transferred to MIPS/ARM.
      Some info can be found on www.lexra.com and www.picoturbo.com.
      Not much details about the deals are provided, so if Lexra/picoTurbo
      were bought off or sued into submission is not clear.

      More than ever, I'm happy with the decision to go SPARC .. :-)

      (and many thanks to Sun and SPARC Int. for the open license!)
