They might work in the MacBook or Mac mini, but they're not going to cut in a Pro.

Why would Apple support two architectures?

A platform they control completely, with technology they don’t have to share with competitors, leveraging the scale of iOS?

A better question is _why wouldn’t they?_

If Apple supports only one architecture, they are reinforcing white, patriarchal, Christian, hetero, cisgender norms. WE DEMAND DIVERSE ARCHITECTURES NOW!

Did Grubs not read the article? A few years ago there WERE ARM-based Windows computers in the form of Windows RT. They sucked, but they still existed.

>these ARM CPUs are fast enough to emulate x86 software.

Are they? I think that remains to be seen. They'll ship these even if it's so slow it completely sucks.

I get Americanized spelling, but the thing that shits me the most is denoting time by seasons.

"Next spring"? What the fuck? For half the planet it's not even true (though not half the population, granted). Say a month, or "Q2" or something. Fuck seasons.

That said, it doesn't surprise me at all that Gruber wouldn't have even considered i17n.

The current iPad Pro is fast- but its RAM isn't enough to support really memory-intensive work like median blurring a 50-megapixel file, or compositing.

Otherwise, it is brilliant. I can't wait for the iPad Pro line to fully take off the brakes.
