Androids, Tablets and Skylights, Oh My: The Q&A

| Q: What does the choice of ARM over x86 mean 
| in practical terms?
| A: Well, it affects the software selection, 
| most obviously. Most Linux distributionsâ 
| support for the ARM chipset is minimal: 
| Ubuntu, for example, only supports two flavors 
| of ARM chips, and the known issues list is 
| grim reading. Which is likely why Qualcomm 
| (whoâs been hiring for this), Lenovo or both 
| seem to have created their own flavor of 
| Linux, with âwidgetsâ and a task oriented 
| interface.

2010 kicks off era of hidden Linux

| Next up, there will be much more virtual
| Linux, particularly in Microsoft and Windows
| shops that are enjoying greater integration
| and support of Linux from Redmond. This â
| along with the growing base of enterprise
| Linux users leveraging virtualization and
| additional commercial support from Red Hat,
| Novell, Canonical and others â will help
| fuel more virtual Linux traction and growth.
| However, donât expect Microsoft to talk too
| loudly about virtual Linux options and keep
| in mind we are still, even now in 2010,
| relatively early on in the enterprise
| adoption of server virtualization.
| Moving on, what better place for Linux to
| hide inconspicuously than in cloud
| computing? Weâve covered the significance of
| community Linux in the enterprise and also
| community Linux in the clouds. With more
| support for community software and growing
| desire to build private and hybrid clouds,
| Linux (both commercial and community)
| figures prominently into the equation as a
| basic, flexible yet scalable building block.
| The end result is both use of Linux to build
| cloud infrastructure and availability of
| Linux in the clouds, even though it is
| likely to be labeled or branded something
| other than âLinux.â
