Yes, several Tensilica customers run Linux on their Tensilica IP cores. And we collect information on how best to do that at our Wiki. We've seen Linux running on cores with up to a gigabyte of memory. And while most of our processors run without operating systems in the dataplane, why not match up those dataplane cores with a Tensilica main control processor running Linux as well. Then all the cores will be using the same software tool chain.
