I wish the #FCC would take a hard look at improving slow broadband in software.

There's still fire in my belly, left, I think, from 2014.

What arm fans seem to not get is that you need cache - lots of it - to have the sustained performance of intel processors. And cache eats power. Doing DMA to cache as intel does, rocks, and I don't know if arm does that.

Secondly, their video drivers suck. So does most of their ethernet designs. As for wifi, those suck pretty bad too. And the pcie bus is faster than most anything I've seen.

I like arm. But I wish they'd get on the stick on making these other bits of IP work well.
