Very intersting and very exciting... just the kind of thing one would hope to see in an open and thriving OS.

This is a great news. Android ported on Linux kernel thats really interesting. Android is the most saleable OS today and linux being open source, it would be a great marriage. I guess its most favorable business situation.

Very interesting development. Very soon Google will loose control of Android. It is equipping its enemies with this monster OS

Is this Meta Processor a competitor for ARM CPUs in the mobile space? I guess, since ARM ditched PowerVR & started making its own Mali graphics cores, this was the only option for ImgTec. But I am skeptical about the success , to say the least.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
