Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
Kerneltrap has posted the latest in-depth kernel hacker
interview with Russell King, who originally ported Linux to ARM and
continues to oversee ARM Linux development.
Russell King: I started hacking on Linux for
my Acorn A5000 machine back in Spring 1994 while still at
Southampton University, after a fellow student, Martin Ebourne,
introduced it to me. An A5000 is a desktop-like ARM based machine.
It was already about 3 years old and underpowered at that time,
with only 4MB of RAM but it was the machine I had.
Russell talks about ARM, the 2.4 kernel, the upcoming 2.5 kernel
