Comment 1[edit]

I'm worried about this page and a few others (one that I revised already) that 216.237.32.xxx has entered in today. They are suspiciously too good and comprehensive. I'm sure they are copied from somewhere, but I couldn't find them with a search engine. -- ansible

I'm -very- flattered. However, it's just me. Ray Van De Walker,

and I have assented to GPL my writing in the Wikipedia. If you really like it, add it to the "good writing" link! (Something which I think would be unethical for me to do as author.)

Computer architecture types[edit]

Should this article mention things like the von Neumann and Harvard architectures, both of which have articles?

Yes. This article needs considerable work. --Robert Merkel 13:38, 17 Sep 2004 (UTC)

Configurable computing[edit]

I yanked a whole section on configurable computing. It's an interesting idea, but it's a fairly minor part of computer architecture and makes the article less readable for a non-expert. This whole article needs a rewrite. --Robert Merkel 13:38, 17 Sep 2004 (UTC)

I do not agree with the remove. The section can either be improved or titled in a way that it is recognized as not beeing escential for understanding the current style - however the outlook is important for those that are prepared to work themself inot it. By the way the rest is not for nonexperts either! Togo 02:41, 20 Sep 2004 (UTC)
You're missing my point. I am stating that a whole paragraph on configurable computing, in the context of the article as it stands, gave a very misleading view of the importance of the topic to the broader field of computer architecture. As to the reading level of the article, it *should*, at least in its introduction, be accessible to the nonexpert. --Robert Merkel 04:05, 20 Sep 2004 (UTC)
I agree with the removal. At most this page should have a brief mention and link to Reconfigurable computing. --Brouhaha 21:47, 23 Jan 2005 (UTC)
