  • Microsoft releases Windows 10 IoT Core for Raspberry Pi 3 - can it displace Linux on Pi?

    Linux on ARMThe 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.

  • Bite-size i.MX7 module sips power, ships with Linux

    Linux on ARMToradex 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.

  • The Windows-Lookalike Q4OS Now Available for Raspberry Pi 1 & 2

    Linux on ARMTejas Belagod announced this past weekend the release of the third update of the GCC ARM Embedded 4.9 open-source pre-built GNU toolchain from ARM Cortex-M and Cortex-R processors.

  • Cross-compiling Qt Embedded 5.5 for Raspberry Pi 2

    Linux on ARMThis tutorial shows how to cross-compile the Embedded build of Qt 5.5 for Raspberry Pi 2. The Embedded build does not use the X11 server and instead displays the GUI directly using the Raspberry Pi framebuffer. We will show how to use a Raspberry Pi cross-compiler to build the Qt5 framework for Raspberry Pi on a Windows machine.

  • Microsoft publicly releases Windows 10 IoT Core for Raspberry Pi 2 -- free download!

    Linux on ARMWhen the original Raspberry Pi was released, I knew I had to have one. While it was intended as an inexpensive computer on which students could learn coding, the Linux and tinkering community drooled at the diminutive machine's potential for other things. It proved to be a fun open source toy.

  • Raspberry Pi 2 can run Windows 10, Ubuntu Core (and more)

    Linux on ARMThe new $35 Raspberry Pi 2 mini-computer isn’t just faster than the original model that launched 3 years ago. It’s also more versatile: in addition to supporting Raspbian and other Linux-based operating systems, the single-board computer will also be able to run a version of Windows 10.

  • Antutu Benchmark – Rockchip RK3288 (ARM) vs Intel Atom Z3735F

    Linux on ARMMost ARM mini PCs run Android, while mini PCs based on Intel Atom Z3735F currently all ship with Windows 8.1, so it makes comparison difficult. But since Linuxium posted triple boot instructions (Ubuntu, Android, Windows 10) for MeegoPad T01, he’s also run Antutu 5.6 on the platform, so we’ve got a comparison point.

  • Windows Phone Replaced with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS on Lumia 1020

    Linux on ARMWindows phone (Lumia 1020) is probably the last place where you would expect to see Ubuntu, but a user has posted images with Ubuntu running on this device and they seem to be legit.

  • Windows, Linux ARM servers are on their way to the data center

    Linux on ARMSome people can't believe that Microsoft is working on a version of Windows Server for ARM processors. I only wonder what took the software giant so long.

  • Support For Running Windows Apps On ARM With Wine

    Linux on ARMRight before Wine on Android was shown for running Windows applications on Google's Android operating system, the state of Wine for the ARM architecture was talked about. There's a few different Wine ARM scenarios possible, including the ability to run Win32 binaries on a Linux-based ARM system.

  • Linux on a Microsoft Surface Tablet Is Nearly Impossible

    Linux on ARMEver since Microsoft officially released the Surface RT tablet on October 26, Linux experts have tried to find a way to deploy their favorite operating system on the new device. But the Redmond-based technology giant has managed to make it nearly impossible to deploy Linux on a Surface, Linux firmware developer Matthew Garrett admits.

  • Linux On The Microsoft Surface Won't Be Easy

    Linux on ARMIf you were hoping you would be able to run your favorite Linux distribution on Microsoft's new Surface Tablet, it doesn't look like it will be an easy task to accomplish. After going through the state of Linux distributions handling SecureBoot, UEFI-guru Matthew Garrett confirmed via his blog that Linux on the Microsoft Surface is likely a lemon.

  • LF: There's Less Concern About ARM UEFI SecureBoot

    Android-x86James Bottomley wrote a new blog post this morning about why the Linux Foundation really isn't concerned about UEFI SecureBoot on ARM hardware (smart-phones, tablets, etc) compared to the work they are doing on x86 PCs with UEFI SecureBoot support for Linux.

  • Cross-compiling FreeRDP Windows Remote Desktop Client for ARM Linux (in Debian/Ubuntu)

    Linux on ARMLast month, I wrote the instructions to Cross-compile VMWare View for ARM Linux as I intended to "run" Windows 8 in an ARM client (most likely the Raspberry Pi) via PCoIP. However, the procedure to do so seems slightly complicated and requires to purchase a specific VMWare server software (VMware vSphere 5) or download a free trial.

  • Linux won't be locked out of Windows 8 PCs, but FUD continues

    Linux on ARMSummary: A new draft of Microsoft's Windows 8 hardware certification specs confirms what we already knew: the new Secure Boot feature won't lock out Linux on hundreds of millions of new PCs. But Linux backers are demanding the right to hack a new class of devices that doesn't yet exist.

  • Microsoft requiring Secure Boot for ARM devices, hamstringing Linux
