Thumb2 is fine for embedded work but it is not a good basis for a fast server. And I would have to say the MIPS or PowerPC would also have been a better basis for a high performance server than extending the ARM 32 bit ISA. It is full of crap which is very good for embedded stuff but not for a server. ARM were right to abandon it.

And on the ISA decode business. The decode is very important. But there are other areas a good ISA can help with. Cutting down needing memory accesses, having a good modern cache coherency model supported well by the ISA. Dealing with interrupts quickly, supporting virtualization efficiently, simplifying the control flow. Consider even something as simple as the divide instruction - should one cause an interrupt for a divide by zero? Well it seems obvious one should but consider that it is an expensive instruction anyway and instructions round it can proceed in parallel and a test can be generated by a compiler easily. Why lumber it with the possibility of changing the control flow? And if it isn't in the arithmetic unit then it would be because one split it into micro-operations and just sticking in the equivalent instructions avoids the need for such split.

It'll certainly be around for a long time in embedded controllers. I would guess that Apple will soon start emulating 32 bit ARM and remove it from their processors, if they don't do that in the A8 it'll be because it is a tick in Intel terms rather than a tock.

64 bit ARM is already making a rapid advance against MIPS and PowerPC in plans for new embedded controllers.

The ARM Cortex-A17 is far better than the A9 even though it is derived from it, a 60% improvement from better memory handling and branch prediction and a couple of other tweaks. It basically is what ARM should have had instead of the A15 for the high end smartphone market and if they have any sense they're currently making a 64 bit version of it.

There do seem to be a number of other forces in ARM's favor like companies just not wanting to be in thrall to Intel. I don't know how the Russian business about using ARM will go and Intel has had some problems in China. It is a pity but Snowden's revelations have made people a bit paranoid though I think it more likely China would put a spy into a chip they produced for their own citizens than that Intel would do it to them for the NSA.

Their x86 business aint going to save them but I guess they might produce custom SoCs with x86 processors on. If they are independently producing servers in 10 years time it will be ARM ones or some successor chip, who's for The Mill anyone? ;-)

I get the feeling Linus is like someone who's had to use Microsoft Word and is terrified of changing to anything else because of all the work they've done coping with it.
