1) I care, anonymous[I]

2) This is expected, but there's still so many unknowns.

For example, does the T1 chip also supply the video for the Touch Bar? Does the T1 contain a stripped down version of OS X/Darwin based on watchOS that will then take to the OS X/Darwin version for the system-daughter, macOS Sierra, or does that macOS feed the Touch Bar I/O directly? How will this work for Windows via Boot Camp and VMs with other OSes since you will *at least* need the Esc key back?

3) I understand why the right side of the Touch Bar doesn't have a display to the edge, but why not the left side?

Every mac for the last 15 years has had a swag of Arm processors in it. I reckon any mac form the last 5 years say, would have something of the order of 30-50 ARM cores used all over the place. Of course, completely abstracted away from the OS, but it's not news.

Oh man, 2) above is a great question, regarding other OSes.

This is a stupid question. Obviously it simulates a keystroke at the OS level. Idiot.

Regarding the other OSes, it appears that the default behavior is to display function keys:
