MIPS CPUs, the perfect Linux machines

       

When it comes to operating systems, Linux® is perhaps the world’s most popular open source OS. Linux has been running on thousands of MIPS devices that have shipped in very large volume (north of several billions of units). The MIPS ISA (MIPS32, MIPS64 and microMIPS) is fully supported in Linux, with Imagination and our licensees […]
