Talking Arm64 with AlmaLinux

Earlier today, @ppouliot of Ampere and Jack Aboutboul of AlmaLinux had a great conversation about AlmaLinux, its support for Arm64 as a platform, and how Ampere has supported the project.

From Jack: “When we started AlmaLinux, we had a conversation about whether we should only build for x86, or whether we should support Aarch64 too. The conversation was shut down in less than a second, it just wasn’t even a question […] I love playing tricks on people - when I am showing people our Ampere servers, I ask them to touch the heat sink. On x86 if you touch those things, you’ll burn your fingers. With our Ampere servers, they’re not even warm! People are amazed.”

Definitely worth a listen!
