they probably will take in steps due to cost constraints.

well from what they are saying, its not going to fit into an atx mobo. its going to be a customized mobo due to the size of the processor. But i bet more than likely it will over qualify for vista.

About the pricing, it will likely cost about the same as a modern top-of-the-line processor for a CPU. Remember, technology is exponentially exploding. Just 2 years ago dual-core was new, and around 2000 we broke the 1Ghz barrier in normal computers, and overall computer prices have gone DOWN as a whole. Just look at how specs in video cards, for example, are growing fast.

This is the wave of the future, and in about 10 years what we have today will be a joke
