While I have to agree that the presence or absence of ads in LJ may make
or break some consumers decisions about what hardware to go with, I just
feel I have to note that arm has been a long supported platform within
Debian, and there are hundreds if not thousands of machines running
arm/Debian, even if they are not reporting to popcon.  In fact, if I was
running Debian on arm, I would hope my machine wasn't wasting precious
CPU cycles reporting to popcon.

But that's just my 2p.
