Agreed... What about MIPS chips ? I hear they are pretty popular.

I believe that ARM has the number 1,2 and 3 spot in the embedded processor space :-)

And what about custom FPGA chips ? I am not an Elec... engineer, but I
am interested as to what kind of operating systems do custom FPGA
chips run ?

uCLinux has been ported to both Altera's NIOS and Xilinx Microblaze processors but I am not sure how many users are using it. I suspect that for a lot of embedded systems Linux might be an overkill.

Some of the embedded 386 chips can some can't. Not all of them have a
paging MMU some have just segmentation. Nowdays the CPU of choice seems
to be either the VIA fanless processors or the AMD (ex Nat Semi) Geode
system on a chip, both of which are Pentium class or higher
