Indeed, will tomorrow's chips even give us a view of the hardware? Or
will they all be virtual CPUs arranged through an on-chip hypervisor and
given idealised access to perfect memory?
Disks are already there. Memory is already swapping stuff inside
itself. Is the CPU the next frontier?
ps; quick, someone, put a patent in for a VM on a chip
