    with out looking at the SDK

    isn't the atom just a normal cpu (just low powered) and therefore what the hell is the SDK for?

    So Intel want people to code around their Atom because it's so pathetically under powered.
    Why not just get it to run DOS and be done with it ;)

    Seriously, I'd never even contemplate buying an Atom powered Netbook.

    An overarching goal of the Intel Atom Developer Program is to help create an ecosystem of applications for netbooks: to drive new innovative uses plus applications specifically designed for the netbook size and portability. As this is a growing market we want to enhance the overall user experience, and give the opportunity to developers to write once, and sell in multiple stores. Developers can also write components to sell to other developers. The beta SDK announced this week contains the steps necessary for developers to make their applications "store-ready." The app stores will be built upon the Intel app store framework, with applications available at the Intel partner OEM's stores, opening in 2010.

    yes because Atom is now so much more than just the processor. It's an entire platform moniker.
    and that platform includes software!
