Apple M1 an "ARM-powered" device

After giving my IMac to my son I purchased the newer Mac Mini with an M1 chip so that I can deploy IPhone and Android applications.   I installed parallels and was surprised with the following message after "having" to install Windows 11 insider preview (for ARM).

So it looks like I won't be able to have my x64 / x86 Windows development environment within my Apple environment :(  This was a disappointment...

However, the power and performance of the M1 was impressive, not what I was accustomed to.  I'll be downloading Visual Studio 2022 for Mac as well as Visual Studio Code to see how far it will let me go in developing my full-stack application.
