This platform has become the basis for the vast majority of mobile devices, Canonical recently announced that Ubuntu Server would be available for ARM 11.10, but seems that Linus Torvalds, creator of the Linux kernel, it has them all with .
LinuxCon Speaking at last week, Linus Torvalds expressed his concern at the ARM platform. “ I think is really promising ARM ,” said Linus. “ Problem ” he continued, “ is that ARM does not have a standard platform “.
the opinion of Torvalds, ARM is a hodgepodge of companies to develop hardware components almost at random. According to Linus, the kernel is trying to endure a lot of these technologies.
“ has been very problematic for me “, stated the creator of the Linux kernel. “Just look to x86 and ARM branch and verify that ARM is much higher, is not limited by the platform, and WIN is a lot of random garbage everywhere “.
revealed in Datamation, Torvalds suggested that because ARM not have a “primary device” as in x86 PCs, there are many problems in directing the efforts.
Canonical are not too concerned about the issue, claiming that “most of the code [Ubuntu] and works for ARM as it has been reused for mobile platforms. The main challenge is to improve performance the for volume servers that require “.
will be very attentive to the reception of Ubuntu Server 11.10 ARM platforms and trends in the Linux kernel in this sense: if Linus Torvalds makes very interesting comments, and logical-to their development, it is clear that the ARM platform is increasingly present in technology we use every day: have a core fully prepared for it would be particularly interesting to promote the use of Linux on these devices.
