    I'm hoping this will cause Apple all kinds of problems with them moving to ARM.

    Re: Nvidia buys ARM

    Ever heard of a DPU? Neither had I. It is a Data Processing Unit and Nvidia makes one called Bluefield. This is part of the Nvidia publicity statement.

    By combining the industry-leading ConnectX® network adapter with an array of Arm cores, BlueField offers purpose-built hardware acceleration engines with full data center infrastructure on chip programmability
    Now, that is a reason for buying ARM Limited.

    And Canonical is getting in on the act.

    The people at the top will get even richer by this deal. They always do. Greed at the top is a powerful motive for mergers and acquisitions.

    The problem is that the companies that will buy licenses from Nvidia are her direct competitors. And in order not to become addicted, they will be forced to look for alternatives.
    These are Apple, Intel, Huawei, Samsung and Qualcomm.

    As a RPI4 user, I think this is a good move.
