    wtf, he ends by saying that ARM is as powerful, then contradicts that by saying he doesn’t have the luxury of making a chip as powerful as possible and not caring about energy usage, ie like Intel chips for the desktop. You should have followed up by asking, “Given that Windows was built to work on those Intel chips that didn’t care about energy usage, what kind of changes have they had to make to deal with chips that are optimized for energy usage now?” That way, he could also be talking about Atom and you don’t have to deal with his contradictory nonsense about ARM anymore.
