    if you go deeper in the so called supply chain fiasco of the chip crisis you will find that there was never a crisis in the supply chain....

    there are only 2 companies who was the bottleneck ASML (EUV lithography) and Ajinomoto (BF-Substrat (Ajinomoto-Build-up-Film))...

    for Ajinomoto its super simple to just build more factories for more Substrat

    and ASML did not even need to build more factories they just developed High-NA EUV,... High-NA means they can just do the EUV lighting job much much faster...

    this means there was never a problem in the supply chain...

    what really happened: monero crypto coin did eat all the CPUs and ethereum crypto coin did eat the gpus.

    and eat all the cpu/gpus means they did consume all no matter how much you produce if you produce the double they consumed the double if you consume 100 times more they consume all the 100 times more.

      Microsoft has a long history of not following standards either.

        It's Linux on the M1/M2 Macs. The use case is whatever you want to make of it.

        If you want to run "Apple apps", why would you be looking at linux on a Mac? You can already use those on macOS.

          apple does not act """alone""" you have problem to get why apple does this because you think they act alone.

            not following their own standards to be precise

              Dude, you got no clue. Most industrial MPUs / microcontrollers now have a backlog way into 2023.

              there are only 2 companies who was the bottleneck ASML (EUV lithography) and Ajinomoto (BF-Substrat (Ajinomoto-Build-up-Film))...

              Try building new ones for those "industrial" processes, where a bigger scale is common for various reasons.

              Again, no clue. And the issues from the ukraine war (delivered most of the neon needed) are not even hitting.

              Sure sure, kinda explains how deep you are involved into the tech behind it =)

                    but there was no bottleneck there. it was the Ajinomoto Substrate and ASML High-NA EUV
                    and also the crypto mining boom...
                    both are fixed now. and your microcontrollers will soon be available again...

                    the Ajinomoto Substrate is not really a high-tech product you can build more facilities easily.

                    of course there was a neon gas production but come one produce neon gas is not high-tech you can do it everywhere.

                    for the fact that i am not a "professional" earning my money with it i am very well informed.

                    most people do not even know what this Ajinomoto company does they think they produce Glutamate for food .
