    I think the detailed guide would be "write code that doesn't care about the architecture".

    If you're doing something low-level enough that it matters about the architecture, then you already know what the impact will be.

    Are you writing an operating system or device driver? If not, you need not concern yourself with this.
    What can this strange device be?
    When I touch it, it gives forth a sound
    It's got wires that vibrate and give music
    What can this thing be that I found?
