@morrick thanks for your article.
This feels like a continuation of the theme of the recent past of losing our power user-focused operating systems. Windows focusing on tablets, and simplifying Final Cut Pro were the two major changes that i felt.
@morrick The Mac Pro really complicates this. How long will it be before they can build one that matches an Intel version? Especitally at the rate at which they update the Mac Pro, it might be a long time before the transition is actually complete.
@33MHz You're welcome. This purported transition is really giving me cold sweats. As they say, I'm hoping for the best but also preparing for the worst. Only problem is, I don't know how to *prepare* myself this time.
@ryb Some are speculating that the architecture transition will first affect consumer devices, with pro machines — whose update cycle is a bit slower — remaining on Intel processors for a while longer. I really don't know. I'm nervous, though.
@morrick I was thinking "software is fluid and can change much more quickly than other industries", but that's not really true, and this is maybe a lot more like an industry change for us, with parallels to trade school changes.
@33MHz Software can indeed change. What's less fluid in this context is what people do with certain software. Innovation on one side, the need for stability on the other. Some people in tech have no idea of the costs of adapting to software changes.
