    Sorry this is so late – pod disruption. Not that anyone else seems to be posting… or do I have a bozo filter, don’t blame you.

    Microsoft has been publicly working on Windows or ARM for years now.

    It lacks developer support, but that’s a matter of time. Microsoft will make machines and if Apple makes machines… the real issue is developers who do machine code (or better) for speed, but I can’t find a reference for that.

    How does this not enter these discussions?
    There’s no need to emulate Windows on an ARM Mac, Microsoft is working on it, and if Apple comes through with a breakthrough desktop or at least notebook processor, Windows on ARM will benefit.

    The Arment argument, that ARM chips just don’t have the grunt (50W +) for MacBook Pro work, holds water, but the Windows chestnut is a ‘solved’ issue.
