You wana tell people to do more research, I challenge you to the same thing.
If I'd of said create
this would of all being true.
Perhaps your understanding of design and mine is different.
If you look at pretty much the first line in my post you'll see I credited ARM to to creation of the architecture etc.
It's wiki but still;

Design does not necessarily mean to credit the designer with creation of all the parts just the cohesion.Edited by Skrillex - 10/29/11 at 3:47am
