Re: Good, I like RISC-V

You like RISC-V. Great, but what to you like about it? What's in the ISA that has made it a better engineering fit for you?

Just refrain from mentioning any particular implementations because the implementations are not what characterise the RISC-V architecture - the only thing that characterises the architecture is the ISA. All the rest is microarchitecture (i.e. chip circuitry) and you can find good and bad microarchitectures for all the dominant ISAs.
