but can be used by people playing with emulators or small netbooks
needing a fast and small Linux system.
+OpenADK can also be used to generate a cross-toolchain for any kind

+GNU libc and newlib.
Embedded systems often use processors that are not the regular x86
-processors everyone is used to having in his PC. They can be PowerPC
