They don't understand what made the PC so attractive

It was the common hardware platform which was easy to clone and extend without sacrificing basic compatibility that made the PC so important.

Once SoC manufacturers create a common ARM-platform, they will conquer the PC business. However that's unlikely to happen, as vendor lock-in is more important to them than setting a few million more chips.
