Power consumption. Designing CPU's for x86 instead of a RISC architecture necessitates higher complexity, and thus, power consumption.

Simple few million transistor RISC design is good for applications of less than a watt.

Did you unironically expect Linus not to blindly defend x86?

It was his study subject during his Master's!

He worked half his career designing x86 chips!

He's still just a (rather untalented) programmer though. As usual, he focuses his defense on speed and clever kludges - which is nice, but he completely overlooks other factors.

Factor number 1 in my opinion: security. x86 has no proper page protection.

But fuck it, who cares about my expert opinion? I'm not famous, right.

The context is ambiguous here, neither of you are wrong

x86 is a CISC architecture - and needs to be decoded as such - but for the discussion of power consumption, the Execute core architecture is more significant than Decode. Ultimately, it probably depends on what size chip we're talking (Xeon vs Quark)

X86 is risc. It has been risc since Pentium pro.
