    While there x86 alternatives for a workstation (IBM's power), there are still no alternatives in the GPU market: every single modern GPU commercially available requires binary blobs.

    All you need to know about x86 instructions can fit on an index card and I can give it to you. The real problem is selling it because most countries would ban the import.

    The real problem is that ARM has just as many problems. When it comes to freedom, it seems POWER is a much better alternative.
