Linaro aims to make the plumbing for porting Linux to ARM SoCs work very well
At issue are the numerous ARM SoCs out there that requires gcc and other
essential tools to make light work of porting Linux to that new
ARM SoC (System on Chip) devices hit the marketing shelves running.
Membership has to be paid for, but the benefit is that you get
an army of engineers to trawl through the CPU specifications and go
make it all work as best as it can be done across a greater variety
Canonical the makers of Ubuntu is one of the founding contributors
to Linaro. Their plan is to run Ubuntu on dual core ARM mobiles http://www.ubuntu.com/devices/android
Coolest plan ever.
