running Fedora, x86 clearly is far far more popular. ARM systems
will get more competitive in this space in the near future and we
should be prepared but we are not there yet and we should be honest
about that. Counting phones and tablets as ARM systems in the
context of Fedora is entirely misleading and folks promoting ARM
should stop doing that.
I think you will find that only 1 has. There are many things that could
be looked at down the road that are outside the scope of this change
It is purely about removing 32 bit hardware floating point arm from
secondary and making it primary. which entails building as primary,
composing as primary, and shipping as primary. the things we build and
ship, OEM images, pxe tree etc, are not part of this Change.
There are lots of aspects of the ARM ecosystem that will evolve and get
better over time. I personally believe that we are at the tipping point
where ARM as primary is viable and something that Fedora should do in
order to enable and be at the forefront of emerging technologies.
I expect that down the road lots of new changes for ARM things will
come. some of them probably wont be things for x86. We the ARM team
have done a lot of work, and made a lot of improvements over the last
year. not everything is perfect but nothing is.
