Really there is no beginning and no end, so we're somewhere in the
middle ;-) ARM-as-secondary was earlier. ARM-as-primary is next.
Fedora-on-tablets is later. Fedora-on-cellphones is later. The bottom
line is that Fedora is an rpm-based native-built operating system, so
ARM servers come first. Fedora isn't currently built to run efficiently
and smoothly on embedded devices. That's okay, it's nice to have
followup projects. Meanwhile ARM servers are going to be important too.
You haven't answered his question: why would ARM-as-primary come before
Fedora-on-tablets and Fedora-on-cellphones? Those can be perfectly supported
using the secondary architecture infrastructure (or if not, we need to
improve that infrastructure).
