This was not my point. Of course the larger ARM ecosystem will eventually make sure that these issues are going to be fixed - if it is Apple or anyone else like Amazon or even the open source community does not really matter.Apple chose ARM, fully knowing about the ecosystem surrounding it. I argue that the problem isn't with the phoronix test suite. Instead, I argue that it's a problem for Apple given that that's the state of software today. If they want to fix it, they can bloody well pay programers to fix it for them.
I am for instance looking into improving the Intel Embree library with respect to Arm NEON - it is used by Blender, Maxon Cinema and other 3d applications. If you compile Embree from the official sources there is just C++ code path for ARM available.
