Linux on ARMIf you want an Arm Linux laptop, you have already some choices with products such as Pine64 Pinebook,  or Olimex TERES-I open source hardware laptop,  but if instead you’d rather do without keyboard, and get an Arm Linux tablet, choices are much more limited, if any at all.

Linux on ARMIn the last few years, smartphone hardware has become powerful enough to drive conventional desktop software. A developing trend is to create laptops using hardware initially designed for smartphones and embedded systems.

Linux on ARMThe developers behind the Debian-based Q4OS Linux operating system informed Softpedia about the availability of the Q4OS 2.5 stable release for ARM devices, including the Raspberry Pi.

Linux on ARMWill Deacon submitted the 64-bit ARM (ARM64/AArch64) changes on Tuesday for the Linux 4.19 kernel merge window. The 64-bit ARM space on Linux remains as busy as ever. For this next kernel cycle, Deacon characterized the changes as "a bunch of good stuff in here." That good 64-bit ARM stuff for Linux 4.19 includes:

Linux on ARMWe are proud to announce a new major stable release of the Q4OS 2.5 Scorpion ARM port, optimized for the Raspberry Pi series of single board computers. It is based on the latest stable Raspbian Stretch distribution and Trinity desktop R14.0.5 version. Q4OS is one of a few distributions offering the full desktop environment on the ARM architecture.

Linux on ARMHardware support improvements coming for Linux 4.19 aren't limited to the x86 space but a lot of new ARM hardware support is also being introduced in this imminent kernel cycle.

Linux on ARMIt's been a while since having any advancements to report on the live kernel patching front for being able to deploy primarily Linux kernel security fixes without having to reboot the system. There is some new progress on that front to report on now and that is the 64-bit ARM (ARM64/AArch64) support getting squared away.

Linux on ARMThe Linux 4.19 kernel will be introducing a new "raspberrypi-hwmon" driver capable of reporting under-voltage conditions for Raspberry Pi boards.

Linux on ARMJust two weeks after releasing the first build of his RaspAnd operating system based on Google's Android 8.1 Oreo mobile OS, Arne Exton today announced a new version with support for the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ computer.

Linux on ARMIt's been two years since we last heard from Dylan Callahan and his awesome Chromium OS for SBCs project that tried to bring the open-source, Linux-based operating system to single-board computers.

Linux on ARMArne Exton informs Softpedia today about the availability of the first version of its RaspAnd operating system for Raspberry Pi computers based on Google's latest Android 8.1 Oreo mobile OS.

Linux on ARMNetBSD on Arm started in 2014 with the release of version 7.0, and last year device tree support was implemented and tested on some Allwinner H3 boards.

Linux on ARMWhen it comes to the growing number of changes slated for Fedora 29, while most of the feature plans benefit all supported CPU architectures, there are also some ARM-specific improvements planned.

Linux on ARMComputer hardware is useless without software. As cool as the diminutive Raspberry Pi computers are, for instance, they are just paperweights until you install an operating system. The little computers can run many OSes -- including an IoT variant of Windows 10 -- but really, Linux makes it shine.

Linux on ARMRaspberry Pi Foundation’s Raspbian Linux operating system for Raspberry Pi computers received a new stable version with various new features and many improvements.
