Re: ARM is not very popular as desktop
I have not upgraded the CPU on a motherboard on a desktop ever. I expect 2-4 years from a PC. by that time there are a whole host of reasons a new pc is sensible. i suspect arm desktops are not common is because 64bit arm is relatively new, 2gb is not enough ram for a modern desktop. If/when the server platform and the phone are 64bit ARM ,and virtualization works reliably, an arm desktop for development starts to make more sense.
