Hacker friendly SBCs like the Raspberry Pi 3 and Odroid-C2 may have 64-bit CPUs, but for now their default Linux OSes remain at 32-bits. The arrival of the $35, wireless-enabled, Raspberry Pi 3, following a similarly 64-bit, $40 Odroid-C2 SBC a few weeks ago, represent a big speed boost for Linux hacker boards but not a sudden switch to 64-bit ARM computing. The default Linux distributions released by the Raspberry Pi Foundation and Hardkernel’s Odroid project are still 32-bit.

Linux on ARM
Raspberry Pi 3 and hardkernel ODROID-C2 launched the same day, and together with Pine A64/A64+, are the only ultra low cost (<$40) 64-bit ARM development boards available or soon-to-be available, so I’ve decided to make a comparison of the three boards the same way I did with ~$10 boards with a Raspberry Pi Zero, C.H.I.P, and Orange Pi One comparison.
The ARM-powered Raspberry Pi computers have a been a godsend to tinkerers, students, HTPC enthusiasts, and more. The inexpensive devices have proven quite useful for many projects, and continue to push the envelope on what can be achieved for little money. The $5 Raspberry Pi Zero, while very limited, is quite the feat of engineering.
Now that Raspberry Pi 3 has officially landed, the first distributions are arriving, and it looks like Ubuntu MATE 15.10 is the first one to provide support.
We've already told you a couple of days ago that Raspberry Pi 3 will be released in February with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth LE support, but we never though it would be today, February 29, 2016.
We believe that you already know about the surprise launch of the Raspberry Pi 3 single-board computer today, February 29, 2016, and it appears that developers had early access to the board.
We've been covering the Chromium OS for Raspberry Pi 2 project for quite some time now, and just a few days ago, we exclusively reported on its fourth release, which brought huge performance improvements and a redesigned kernel.
It's perhaps hard to believe that four years ago to the day the original Raspberry Pi Model B with its humble 256MB RAM was released. It was an instant hit and immediately sold out around the world. Since then, the Pi has gone from strength to strength spawning a couple new models, including the Raspberry Pi 2 and the Raspberry Pi Zero both released within the last year.
Immediately after announcing the release of Linux kernel 4.4.3 LTS and Linux kernel 3.10.98 LTS, Greg Kroah-Hartman informed the Linux community about the release of Linux kernel 3.14.62 LTS.
Eurotech’s rugged “ReliaGate 10-11” IoT gateway runs Linux on a TI AM3352, offers numerous options, and is supported with an updated ESF 3.3 framework.
Greg Kroah-Hartman just announced earlier today, February 26, 2016, the general availability of the third maintenance release in the stable, long-term supported Linux 4.4 kernel series.
One of the latest best things that happened this year at MWC (Mobile World Congress) for Canonical and Ubuntu, which took place in Barcelona, Spain, between February 22 and 25, 2016, is the following interview with Mark Shuttleworth.
The GNOME project needs access to ARMv7 hardware to make sure that it's ready for the abundance of devices using it.
Linux is such a wonderful kernel for many reasons, but I find its adaptability to be the tops. You can get an operating system based on the kernel running on such a broad range of hardware -- something Microsoft can only dream about with its venerable Windows.
Toradex launched a pair of Colibri COMs built around NXP’s low-power, Cortex-A7- and -M4-based i.MX 7 Solo and Dual SoCs, featuring -20 to 85°C operation.
