Ok, thank you for sharing the same opinion.

In the last few months I did spend quite some time with Arm Linux and although occasionally there may be small differences, generally the builds are very similar to those for Intel, so adding support in Eclipse shouldn't be that difficult.

For Apple I guess it should be even easier.

Windows on Arm is a kind of a Fata Morgana mirage, I heard of it, but never saw one running. :-(

At a certain point there was a Windows version advertised on the Raspberry Pi site, but I could not make it run. Now it is no longer there.


Personally I already have the development and test machines and build environments for Arm 32/64-bit, so I suggest we start with Linux.

Apple Silicon is still very young, and I don't have a development machine yet.

Please do so and let me know of your decision.

Thank you,
