ARM chipsets like AWS Gravitron and Google Cloud/Azure Ampere have quickly gained adoption. There are many enterprise tailwinds: supply chain, licensing, performance, cost, etc.

But I've been most surprised with how quickly developers have adopted ARM in production. Even with superior cost and performance, there's gravity to running a specific architecture. Ten years ago, switching off Intel would have been a long, painful transition.

So why are more application developers running ARM?
