Hardware News   Hardware News : ColdFire Processers to include MMU unit
   posted by hyph-n on 19-May-2004 8:03:37 (1460 reads)
I think ColdFire processors were considered as an alternative/migration to/from the 68k for the Amiga. Anyway, this is a Slashdot story - and the Amiga is mentioned several times in the comments.

Slashdot story - Linux To Gain Another Chip Family



Quote:
Freescale will unveil the first ColdFire processors ever to include a memory management unit (MMU), and therefore able to run full-scale Linux, this week at the Embedded Processor Forum in San Jose, Calif. The chips cost $17 - $25, and are used mostly in industrial control and factory automation. Simultaneously, Freescale tools subsidiary Metrowerks announced plans to offer Linux development tools for Coldfire chips, which previously had been restricted to running uClinux due to the lack of an MMU.

Sadly slashdot is suffering from the "morons trying to beat each other to the post button"-syndrome.
If you read the comments a few days after the article was posted the moron comments have usually been modded down far enough to not bother you.
