Re: The death of CISC?

The bottom end of X86 is fast enough for all but a small minority. Mid-range ARMs are more than fast enough for most people's use of a desktop and are fine for software development too. There is plenty of software available for common tasks. The mass market are staying with X86 for their legacy software and their phones for everything else. That is the barrier to sales of an ARM desktop (and people being able to earn a living from selling binaries compiled for one.)
