Well, that's encouraging.

The big question for me is, is there a sign that a system architecture
emerges for ARM, or at least a sufficiently popular basic design
that has a future?

If we look at Synology, for instance, their DS109j is the 6th revision
or so, and it's on the cusp of being replaced again, that's why the
price dipped:

Chasing the kaleidoscopic change of platforms is a non-starter for me
as a software developer. I want to buy the box, jumpstart it, and it
should get into the cloud right away, with my software pulled from
the repo and running on it.

Currently I use these:

With cheap RAM and disk it goes firmly below $200. If ARM box that
I have to nurse into working costs that much, it's not interesting.
But I'm willing to investigate, that's what my question was about.
