You should show me who prefer x86 and its limited non orthogonal register allocation (AX, BX, ...) vs. full orthogonal processing on ARM Rx registers, and its exceptionally good conditional execution. Its 16 bits Thumb ISA. Etc... OK, it lacks of MUL/DIV in early versions, no FPU in many incarnations, but it works pretty well.

Coding/debugging the x86 in assembly, on the other hand...
