Intel x86 or x64 processors have traditionally been found in laptops and desktops, while ARM processors have been found in lower-power embedded devices, smartphones, and tablets. But you can now buy laptops with ARM chips and smartphones with Intel chips.
It Begins: AMD Announces Its First ARM Based Server SoC,... - Around 15 months ago, AMD announced that it would be building 64-bit ARM based SoCs for servers in 2014. Less than a month into 2014, AMD made good on its promise and...

Linux on ARM
I’ve thought I’ll have some ARM/GHC fun again after a while and thought to give a try to ARM64 port. I mean AArch64 mode of ARMv8 platform as the ARM64 of course.
With the revelations by Edward Snowden of NSA’s large scale spying programs, people have become more and more aware that there’s very little privacy online, and in 2013 several companies have tried to solve this online privacy issue, by launching services and products such as Onion Pi and Safeplug Tor Server, or even the recently announced privacy-focused Blackphone.
Advantech’s first ARM-based SBC is a signage oriented 3.5-inch embedded board called the RSB-4410 that runs Linux on a Freescale i.MX6 at just 2.3 Watts
MYIR announced a Linux- and Android-ready COM called the “MYC-AM335X” with six versions of the TI Sitara AM335x SoC, plus a baseboard and touchscreens.
If you want a quad core development board for less than $100, you only have two choices right now: Radxa Rock powered by Rockchip RK3188, and Hardkernel ODROID-U3 powered by Samsung Exynos 4412 prime.
The battery recently died in my old Asus Netbook which gave me some fire to finally get together a functional filesystem for the Samsung Chromebook I've had for a little over a year. I published a rough file system with install instructions here last December. Since then a few things have changed in the structure of ChromeOS and the install script/file systems needed some updates.
Zotac is adding two new computers to its ZBOX Nano lineup. But unlike most of the company’s mini PCs, these won’t feature x86 processors and ship as barebones systems. The new models are powered by ARM chips and will ship with a choice of Android or Ubuntu Linux software.
Chinese mobile phone maker Meizu is reportedly getting ready for the launch of a new smartphone in its popular MX series, though this one might be nothing more than a version of the already available MX3.
In the first post about my new Raspberry Pi, I explored about NOOBS (the New Out Of Box Software package) and Raspbian, the Debian GNU/Linux spin customised for the Pi. This time I want to take a look at the other two general-purpose Linux distributions which have been customised and packaged for the Pi, Arch Linux ARM and Pidora.
The Linaro-hosted "Enterprise Group" (LEG) is dedicated to accelerate Linux ARM server ecosystem development and extends the list of Linaro members beyond ARM silicon vendors to Server OEM's and commercial Linux providers.
Updated! - CRUX-ARM is a port of CRUX distribution to ARM devices and was born in the beginning of 2009. The primary focus of CRUX-ARM is provide a port of CRUX distribution to ARM devices. It follows CRUX guidelines, trying to keep in mind the KISS (Keep It Simple, Stupid) concept and share characteristics. It's targeted to experienced linux (and better CRUX) users.
Linux is omnipresent in your life via gadget running Android, but in the desktop world, as many of you already know, it’s not straightforward to get a Linux distribution fully work on ARM platform, because each ARM SoC or board is different, and above all binary blobs used for GPUs, VPUs, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth chips can make it extremely complex, even impossible, to have a fully working ARM Linux distribution for a given hardware.
Showing off the latest Applied Micro 64bit X-Gene ARM Server Development Board https://myxgene.apm.com/ (which Rob Savoye of Linaro eagerly wants to start playing with), a Dell's 64bit ARM Server solution running Fedora 19 advancing quite a bit with advancing usability, working on a proof of concept for early 2014 for Dell's key cloud server customers before going into mass production (Dell already did some 32bit ARM Server tests in Europe with some customers), some things like Oracle JDK still has to fully come over (needs some tuning) to the platform.
People have been loading Ubuntu and other Linux distributions onto Android TV sticks for about as long as these cheap ARM-based devices have been available. But the Rikomagic MK802 IV LE is one of the first models to come with Ubuntu pre-loaded.
