Not an ARM fan boy the way you assume.
I have in the past here called ARM32 crap, and said that Apple could dump ARM and no one would care, and with the change to ARM64 and Apple designed silicon that is exactly what Apple is doing.

Apple was not going to drag that antique random collection of brain damage into the future. An Intel style patent and implementation moat for brain damage has no benefits for Apple.

And how would adding a ARM32 app shell to an ARM64 server help with reducing bugs and exploits, and make development faster and cheaper. A black hole for security exploits and bugs that would be.

Yes.

In a few short years no one will care about ARM32, everything will be 64bit, even the phones will be dumping compatibility with 32bit.

Good points.
You realize of course that 20 years ago the RISC camp was split into a half dozen factions, none big enough to survive.
Sparc and Power will be dead in a few years, both will convert to ARM64, just like AMD is.

Hows that for a prediction.

There will be a full spectrum of ARM64 implementations from low to as high as Intel can go.

Agreed. Old Arm chips are pretty crap.

You will be wrong, and sooner than you think possible. All it takes is for POWER to go ARM64.

Another prediction:
In ten years AMD will not be making any x86 chips. And no one will care. Plenty of ARM64 choices.

So are you going to go down with the x86 ship, or jump on the ARM64 bandwagon. ;)
(By the time you jump it will be too late, so yes you will go down with x86. ;) ;) ;)

Intel does take a small hit for the instruction decoder, that moat is worth it to Intel.
Lots of companies are doing those other things that matter, on ARM64.

Yes, no one is going to run Windows XP on a ARM64 box.
Just what sort of mystical advantage do you think the random collection of near non-existent ARM32/Thumb/Cortex server software could possibly help a ARM64 server.

Do you want to add an x86 compatibility mode to ARM64? Really? That is the only way to get any backwards compatibility that matters to anyone. We both realize how stupid that idea is.

> So I'm dead serious when I say that anybody who talks about the alleged huge advantages of simple decoding,

Yes backwards compatibility MATTERS for x86. For ARM64 servers it is merely a short term nuisance.
Yes the near complete lack of apps will hurt at first, but the bandwagon will gather steam and nothing will stop it.

It is a small advantage to jettison all that legacy baggage, every little bit helps.

Brett, who is apparently a f*cking moron. ;) ;) ;)
