Aww, but ARM is theeeee fuuuuuutuuuuuuuuuure, it can’t possibly have any flaws! /s

(Sorry, but ARM is great for low-power applications, but as far as general purpose computing goes, FPUs are still important, POWER blows ARM out of the water, and it’s open source to boot. If we need a new desktop/laptop architecture, POWER is the direction to go, not ARM.)
