Apple Another Apple-to-switch-Macs-to-ARM post. "Apple engineers have grown confident that the chip designs used for its mobile devices will one day be powerful enough to run its desktops and laptops, said three people with knowledge of the work, who asked to remain anonymous because the plans are confidential. Apple began using Intel chips for Macs in 2005." No idea when Apple will make the switch, but they will do it. I'm thinking 5-10 year timeframe.

Adobe Suite, MS Office for starters ...


There's already ARM versions of MS Office for Windows, so I don't know where you get this idea that Adobe nor MS couldn't cross-compile their software if Apple decided to support ARM on their desktop OS.
