Comment 1Edit

I'm worried about this page and a few others (one that I revised already) that 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 typesEdit

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 computingEdit

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)
