I think the hold up is that ARM needs to be comparable in terms of computing power to Intel.
I don't think "comparable" is sufficient. I think that to switch an OS where people primerally use propeitary native code to a new incompatible CPU architecture the new processors have to be substantially more powerful to offset the performance cost of the emulation.
I find it unlikely that ARM will ever make a processor that is substantially more powerful than a regular desktop/laptop intel chip.
For some reason, "Schoolhouse Rock" left out the arm-twisting, horse-trading, and other backroom dealing necessary to get a bill passed.
Schoolhouse Rock came out during the Bicentennial Year (1976) with a strong emphasis on positive themes. I don't think anyone back then wanted to re-visit "the arm-twisting, horse-trading, and other backroom dealing" behind the three-fifth compromise between the free states and the slave states for the U.S. Constitution. A compromise that led to a Civil War in the 1860's, the civil rights movement in the 1960's and the Black Lives Matter movement today.
It was the only life-bearing planet in the entire universe; the very first planet to have life. It was the only planet in existence to have the conditions necessary for biogenesis, including being a double planet, each orbiting each other. The double planet was one of the keys of biogenesis, because of the tides. The timing of orbits and gravities had to be perfect, as well as chemical and photonic conditions.
You need a refresher course on how an idea become a law. It's called democracy.
We need kids who know the law, who understand finance, who will become actual citizens.
We need kids who will become carpenters, electricians, plumbers and other skilled trade workers. Construction is facing a critical shortage of workers as the foreign-born workers went home after the Great Recession, others got jobs in different industries, and most will retire in the years to come. We don't need more lawyers or Wall Street finance guys. We need people who can rebuild America.
Somebody tell Rahm that quite soon most software will be written by software.
Like the early text editors that wrote mangled HTML code? If you knew HTML and CSS in the late 1990's, you could wade through the source code to manually fix those misbehaving table cells. Tweny years later, I still write HTML code by hand. I even write Python scripts that write HTML template code. Just because software is written by other software, you still need to know how software works when things go horribly wrong.
Not to mention....the education system should NOT be in the hands of the Feds to dictate what the states teach.
What part of United States don't you understand? Someone has to set the educational standards for the entire country. We can't have 50 states marching to a different drummer, especially when we have a political culture that values ignorance over intelligence.
