Really there is no beginning and no end, so we're somewhere in the 
middle ;-)  ARM-as-secondary was earlier.  ARM-as-primary is next. 
Fedora-on-tablets is later.  Fedora-on-cellphones is later.  The bottom 
line is that Fedora is an rpm-based native-built operating system, so 
ARM servers come first.  Fedora isn't currently built to run efficiently 
and smoothly on embedded devices.  That's okay, it's nice to have 
followup projects.  Meanwhile ARM servers are going to be important too.
