   I read a very interesting statistic in an issue of Circuit Cellar Ink
a little less than a year ago. Apparently 8051 (and 8051 derivative)
processors are produced in quantities in excess of one million per day.

   Yes, per DAY.

   The air conditioner in my office has an 8051 in it. I have a Cisco
Catalyst 5000 network switch in my computer room...each and every board
on its bus has an 8032 (which is a ROM-less 8052, which in turn is a
"bigger" 8051) on it. The list goes on and on.
