Why ARM? ARM chips are the most widely-produced processor family in the world; they have historically been used in cell phones and embedded applications, but were originally designed as desktop processors, and are increasingly used in tablet devices and low-power-consumption servers.

  • Low Power Consumption / Better efficiencies
  • High levels of device integration -- "system on a chip" designs, with reduced space and cooling requirements
  • Readily available from multiple vendors
  • Low cost

The Fedora-ARM project is an initiative to bring Fedora to this processor family. Read more here
