I’ve been using Apple computers since their CPUs had PowerPC architecture. I experienced the transition to Intel, I saw the evolution of Xcode since its early versions, I used Rosetta when it used to run PowerPC binaries on Intel CPUs. That’s why when I saw Apple announcing it would be switching to a new ARM-based architecture, I couldn’t ignore it. It was kind of…life-changing.
