Shuttleworth: Excited by Linux on ARM movement

,----[ Quote ]
| As well as making for a consistent
| platform for Linux across all major ARM
| devices, the other major advantage of the
| initiative, says Shuttleworth, is that it
| will speed up time to market for
| developers. âIf you can develop your
| software for âlinux on ARMâ, rather than a
| specific CPU, you can choose the right
| hardware for your project later in the
| development cycle, and reduce the time
| required for enablement of that hardware.â


Arm chief cautious on tablet PCs

,----[ Quote ]
| Mr Brownâs caution may be partly explained by
| Armâs unsuccessful attempt last year to bring
| its chips to the traditional PC markets with
| so-called âsmart booksâ. Smart books are cheap
| laptop computers that have long battery life
| and constant internet connectivity because
| they run on low-power Arm chips and a Linux-
| based operating system, such as Googleâs
| Android.
| While dozens of prototype smart book models
| were the focus of last yearâs Computex and the
| Consumer Electronics Show at Las Vegas this
| year, device makers were never really sold on
| the concept and few became actual products.
| Arm last week joined forces with IBM and chip
| companies Freescale, Samsung, ST-Ericsson and
| Texas Instruments to create Linaro, a company
| that will accelerate the development of Linux
| software for devices such as mobile phones,
| tablet computers and digital TVs.
