Now Macintosh is going to ARM. Gee, thanks Apple!
« on: June 27, 2020, 01:03:07 AM »
I'm really getting tired of Apple's crap.

Finally, we get used to having one industry standard. AMD64 aka x86_64.

It's actually a much better architecture than 32-bit Intel ever was.

Oh, no, Tim Cook's balls are itchy or whatever, so let's switch to ARM.

How many games will we lose this time? How many other programs? You know that they'll maintain Rosetta 2.0 for the absolute minimum length of time and then ditch it like yesterday's underwear. To think that they will take any other course is denialism.

SilverCreator will have an ARM version, as long as unsigned programs are still allowed to run. As I've said before, SilverCreator and GM Cocoaizer are permanently cancelled if Apple removes this capability.

Sounds like the only safe haven is moving to the web.

I am pretty excited about the transition to arm though, mostly because I believe Apple will blow Intel out of the water on CPU performance.
