Linux on ARMLooking for a way to get the most out of your Raspberry Pi? Running a project that just needs something more? Odd as it may seem, Linux might be the problem, so why not consider a non-Linux operating system? Several have been released, or adapted, for use on the Raspberry Pi.

Linux on ARMHardware vendor Ampere Computing with their impressive ARM servers is doing a great job on closely following their hardware's Linux performance as part of a rigorous continuous testing regiment or ensuring quality, compatibility, and stability while being fully-automated.

Linux on ARMIn one of my past posts, I showed how one can install Oracle Linux on a Raspberry Pi from a Mac via the command line. Luckily, my colleague Philippe pointed out to me that things can be even much, much easier thanks to Etcher, an open-source tool to flash SD cards and USB drives. Etcher is available for Mac, Linux, and Windows, which should make the following steps generic.
