LXer: How Linux became a mobile phone OS

Published at LXer:

Linux started out on desktops and servers, but has now shipped on about 20 million mobile phones. Ever wonder how it made the jump? In a new whitepaper, embedded industry pioneer Jim Ready offers a concise technical retrospective on Linux's transition into a mobile phone OS. Ready credits semiconductor vendors, embedded Linux providers, and the open source community with helping to make Linux the powerhouse it is today in the mobile phone market. Other factors include Linux's horizontal, vendor-neutral nature and customizability, and "Moore's Law," which over time has resulted in processors powerful enough and memory inexpensive enough to make Linux practical in mobile devices.
