  • Linux on ARMWhile the traditional server market suffers a sales slump, the niche market for ARM-based servers is hoping to catch fire. The latest example: Boston Ltd. has unveiled the Viridis 2.0 Microserver -- a potential alternative to HP Moonshot and Dell Project Copper ARM servers. It's certified to run Ubuntu 13.10 and OpenStack Havana, and powered by ARM Cortexc A15 quad-core processor. So what's the channel partner angle?

  • Linux on ARMWhen the MK802 Android mini PC hit the streets in 2012, one of the most interesting things about it was the fact that you could install Linux on it and turn it into a cheap, tiny desktop computer.

  • Linux on ARMBoston Limited has announced a new server based on ARM processors and certified to run Ubuntu Linux 13.10, a move that could further stir up growing interest in ARM servers.

  • Linux on ARMSince the Raspberry Pi was launched many people have asked, and still ask, if/when Ubuntu will be available for the Raspberry Pi. As Canonical decided to only provide support for ARMv7 and higher architecture, for optimal performance and user experience on recent hardware, and Raspberry Pi is powered by Broadcom BCM2835 processor based on ARMv6 architecture, this did not happen, and instead a version of Debian called Raspbian became popular, and is still the main OS used by most people.

  • Linux on ARMThe Rikomagic MK802 IV LE is a tiny ARM-based device that you can plug into a TV or monitor’s HDMI port to basically turn it into a full-fledged computer. It’s based on the same hardware as an Android TV stick, but this is one of the first such devices to ship with Ubuntu Linux instead of Android.

  • Linux on ARMAt ARM TechCon, Cavium demonstrated an SDK for its upcoming ARMv8-based Project Thunder SoC family, and announced Ubuntu support for Project Thunder, while Cavium subsidiary MontaVista announced Carrier Grade Linux support for ARMv8. Meanwhile, Cavium and MontaVista joined Linaro and other companies in launching OpenDataPlane, an open source networking SoC interoperability standards organization for Linux.

  • Linux on ARMTaipei, Taiwan – Oct, 2013 -- Artila Electronics, the leading designer and manufacturer of ARM based embedded computer, is proud to announce the release of M-5360A, ARM Cortex A8 System on Module.

  • Linux on ARMSan Jose, CA – October 29, 2013 – Cavium, Inc., (NASDAQ: CAVM), a leading provider of 64bit microprocessors for a variety of enterprise, datacenter and service provider infrastructure applications, today announced that Cavium’s Thunder ARMv8 processors are supported in Ubuntu 13.10, the latest release from Canonical.

  • Linux on ARMThe ODROID-XU is the latest exciting ARM development board. Rather than aiming for low-cost like the Raspberry Pi, the ODROID-XU currently offers maximum performance when it comes to open ARM development boards.

  • Linux on ARMPicUntu is a custom version of Ubuntu Linux designed to run on TV boxes and other devices with Rockchip’s ARM-based processors. Now it’s easier to install than ever, offering a way to turn a cheap Android TV box into a full-fledged Linux computer.

  • Linux on ARMHave an Android tablet or TV box with a Rockchip RK3188 processor, and wish it ran a desktop operating system rather than a mobile OS? A new build of PicUntu is available, bringing the full Ubuntu Linux experience to devices with RK3188 processors.

  • Linux on ARMBack in late 2010, Google announced a "Chromebook"—a low-cost, entry-level netbook that would run Google's own operating system, ChromeOS. Google's vision of ChromeOS, although based on Linux, basically would be a giant Web browser, with all the apps on the machine running in the browser. ChromeOS would be a nearly stateless computer, with all the user's apps based in Google's cloud, running the Google Apps suite.

  • Linux on ARMCommercial Linux distributor Canonical is jumping out ahead of the pack again, and has updated its Landscape management tool for its Ubuntu Server distribution so it can manage instances of Linux running on ARM-based systems as well as the X86 iron it already supports.

  • Linux on ARMThe folks who brought us the PengPod line of 7 and 10 inch tablets which can run Android, Ubuntu, or other Linux-based operating systems are back, and this time they want to offer an iPad-sized tablet with a high-resolution display and a quad-core processor.

  • Linux on ARMThe Cubieboard brings SATA connectivity to a very low price point ARM Single Board Computer (SBC). The board has an ARM A8, 1Gb of RAM, 4Gb of Flash storage, HDMI output, and a whole bunch of IO pins. A recent update, the Cubieboard2 is now out, which replaces the Allwinner A10 CPU from the original Cubieboard (single A8 core) with a dual core Allwinner A20 (two A7 ARM cores).

  • Linux on ARMIt looks like it may be time to stop calling tiny ARM-based devices like the MK802 Android TV sticks and go back to calling them mini PCs. Rikomagic UK has announced it will start shipping Linux Editions of two of its most recent ARM-powered stick-sized computers.

  • Linux on ARMWant to build a so-called “supercomputer,” but don’t want to spend a ridiculous amount of money? No problem. Now there’s an option that costs just $99. Sort of.

  • Linux on ARMCompulab plans to launch a mini-computer with an ARM Cortex-A9 processor and support for both Ubuntu Linux and Google Android. It’s called the Utilite, and the computer’s expected to go on sale in August for $99 and up.

  • Linux on ARMAfter the release of the RK3188 Linux kernel source code last week, Ian Morrison (Linuxium) has managed to boot Ubuntu 12.04 with XFCE desktop on Tronsmart T428. However, as Tronsmart refused to release their source code, further Linux development is likely to happen on Rikomagic MK802 IV, because Rikomagic released the code for their device, so development work will be easier.

  • Linux on ARMRockchip’s RK3188 processor is one of the fastest ARM Cortex-A9 chips around. The 28nm quad-core processor outperforms the chips found in the Samsung Galaxy S III and Google Nexus 7, for instance. And it’s a relatively inexpensive chip, which explains why it’s proven popular with Chinese tablet and TV box makers.
