Who cares what Apple's about to announce? It owes us a macOS x86 virtual appliance for non-Mac computers

Curious what will be the fallout with the proposed ARM/NVidia acquisition?!

Unless NVidia do a absolute cross-licensing deal... Apple’s financial firepower will blow them out of the water .. many-many times over.

The best post-Softbank outcome for ARM is back to a joint/cooperative ownership with all major customers (Apple/Samsung/NVidia/Qualcomm/Marvell etc) owning 10-15%, no-one allowed to own more than 20% and the rest left to small investors. It worked will in the early days before Apple had to dispose during Pepsi-gate to stave off bankruptcy.

* SoftBank should never have been allowed to acquire ARM. Shame on you and devilment on your houses ... Theresa May and Greg Clark being the decision makers when this went down.
