There seems to be a discrepancy between the market, i.e. what people like to buy (very often an ARM-tablet or -smartphone instead of a PC-architecture notebook) and the underlying technical foundations and their understanding and living inside the cummunities.
PC-developers are not spoiled, but the ARM-manufacturers are. They sold and sell very large quantities, but some time the market will be saturated.
ARM is going to catch up with the PC-architecture, but it will most probably not be able to completely rule out x86(-64).
It is going to be equally easy to set up a linux-installation on any ARM-device as it used to be on PCs, but the big hype will be mostly over then already.
