@calvin Honestly that seems more preferable to this x64 hellscape.

@keegs @calvin Aside from every processor vuln that keeps cropping up.

@Jo @keegs except 1. these problems appear on every sufficiently complex CPU (read: anything modern) - everyone just looks at the #1 vendor's 2. a lot of it is speculative execution as a concept, regardless of ISA

we live in hell, but it's everyone's fault!

@keegs @Jo *everyone making CPUs (that aren't simple)

@keegs @Jo @calvin Its way too complicated for what it does. It's not even clear a classic von Neumann architecture is what we want in the next decade and so much of the X64 design space is around optimizing that.
