The arcana of technology, or what do Qualcomm Snapdragon X and Apple have in common?

One of the more interesting developments in the world of technology is the recent launch of a new series of ARM processors created by Qualcomm. We are, of course, talking about the Snapdragon X Elite and Snapdragon X Plus chips, which are designed to run in Windows laptops. This is not the first attempt to combine Windows and ARM architecture CPUs, but it is the first one that, in my opinion, can succeed. However, in order for me to sufficiently explain the full background of this story, we need to go back to 2007.
