Linux As we all know, Mac OS X has support for what is called 'fat binaries'. These are binaries that can carry code for for instance multiple architectures - in the case of the Mac, PowerPC and x86. Ryan Gordon was working on an implementation of fat binaries for Linux - but due to the conduct of the Linux maintainers, Gordon has halted the effort.

Small programs fit on small chips.

But more importantly a software distribution system that is used 99.9% of the time on x86 boxes for programs like Firefox and OO shouldn't be designed around embedded development.
