Linaro has announced
the formation of a group "to collaborate and accelerate the development of foundational software for ARM Server Linux
". The Linaro Enterprise Group (LEG) consists of existing Linaro members ARM, Samsung, and ST-Ericsson, joined by new Linaro members AMD, Applied Micro Circuits Corporation, Calxeda, Canonical, Cavium, Facebook, HP, Marvell, and Red Hat. "The team will build on Linaro’s experience of bringing competing companies together to work on common solutions and enable OEMs, commercial Linux providers and System on a Chip (SoC) vendors to collaborate in a neutral environment on the development and optimization of the core software needed by the rapidly emerging market for low-power hyperscale servers.
" One would guess that the choice of LEG for the name of an ARM group was not entirely arbitrary.
