I don't care what ISA we pursue. X64 might be cheaper, Power9 (continuing with PPC) leave us with really only one affordable system, and Blackbird isn't available yet.
But, as you pointed out, the call was made awhile ago.
I don't think the ISA change is what is holding up the developers. As I said, I think it that they want to enhance the OS.
