Sorry, have to flatly disagree with this.
I’m a professional engineer and a Mac user for over 25 years, and the engineering software just isn’t there on the Mac, and for a lot of clients (if you are consulting), and nearly every company I’ve worked for do not use macs for engineering. It’s only through Virtualisation that it works, and quite nicely too.
The big engineering software companies have no interest in Apple - Cadence, Mentor Graphics, SolidWorks, Altium, Xilinx, etc., etc.
if Apple abandons the x86 architecture, then engineering will abandon Apple, which would be really sad.
