I'm not sure which comment you refer to, but a quick review shows only the
most trite of "negative" comments, along the lines of "ARM is cheaper."

It would be silly to spend any time discussing things in the
hackaday.comcomments anyway. The site itself admits they have a
problem with the
low-brow comments.

But even though I personally have no interest in an x86 clone stuffed into
an arduino package, I can find no actual attacks. The comments are pretty
tame for what typically happens on hackaday.
