ARM torpedoes Windows on ARM: Demands destruction of all PCs with Snapdragon X

Source: Hacker News

Article note: WTF is arm up to here? Qualcomm ate Nuvia whose architecture license apparently specified they were for server or non-mobile or something applications, and are now repurposing a derived core for the laptop market... so ARM is suing to cut off the competing core. It's possible Qualcomm ate Nuvia as a side-step specifically _because_ ARM was being weird about giving them an architectural license. I assume they just want a bigger licensing cut, like everything they've done since Softbank.
