Hardware, Embedded Systems And yet another item on the iPad? Are we serious? Yes, we are, since this one is about something that even geeks who aren't interested in the iPad itself should find intriguing. Steve Jobs said yesterday that the iPad is powered by an Apple A4 processor, but contrary to what many seem to think - it wasn't designed in-house at all.

Do recall that, some years ago, most major Linux distributions where available in x86 and PPC versions - Fedora, Ubuntu and Debian where, and I think Fedora and Debian still are? Simple fact is, Linux (and open-source OS's and software in general) are much more amenable to being shifted from one platform to another than closed-source ones are - and this can be shown to be the case by simple example.
