    What do you think?
    (In the late 80's IIRC Archimedes was on my shortlist of next gen hardware)

    I think it is a burden on the devs and consumers with no obvious benefit.
    The whole inhousing everything is AFAIK a first for Apple.
    Hackintoshes are probably not as easy to build as they are now.
    And OpenSource software projects will be pissed, too.
    Crapitalism.

    Apple already owns an ARM license and is turning out custom CPUs for its mobile gear, so why stay with Intel?

    Compatibility and convenience for OSS comes to mind, also continuity and other minor things I didn't think of.

    Apple seems to have been instrumental in developing ARM processors since the Acorn beginning.

    Like they strongARMed them into making Archimedes a failure?

    The thing is Intel hasn’t been able to evolve in 5-10 years. The can’t make 10nm processors while ARMs are beginning to come out in 5nm. An ipad has a more efficient processor than most laptops. The real question is why wouldn’t they.

    Dunno--Intel seems to have been in the doldrums for several years now. I doubt that the Apple move will significantly affect their bottom line.

    For years, I've been using AMD CPUs for my x86 gear and have been slowly spinning off a lot of tasks to ARM-centric devices.

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    I hate to side with Apple on this, but it is broken. With a proper implementation of AMR technology I would probably work twice as fast.
