Who does this give reason to move to ARM? End-users generally don't have a choice (good luck running AutoCAD on ARM) and OEMs either don't seem to care or list ME as one of the selling points of their systems.

You could make the case that this might convince people to use AMD CPUs, but from what I hear AMD has all the same issues with worse performance to boot.

AMD chips aren't just slower to boot, they're slower overall!


Ferbivore probably meant "in addition", not the booting process.

I am pretty sure you can run VirtualBox on Linux. And you can run Linux on ARM.


But VirtualBox doesn't emulate different instructions sets, so you would have to run ARM windows inside of it and an ARM build of AutoCAD (which I don't believe exists).

Also I'm not sure that VirtualBox supports ARM at all.
