I believe MIPS is a popular choice with internet routers too (at least the ones designed for domestic use).

Out of interest, what did you use for your base OS when you were doing MIPS development? Did you reuse an existing distro? Does Linaro support MIPS?

EDIT: Just found out there's a Linaro-like organisation for MIPS called Prpl. Is that what you used?


We didn't have control over the base OS --- we just had to port to whatever foul junk the manufacturers had put on it, and usually had to link to their UI libraries, as our platform was intended to run alongside the vendor UI.

I vaguely remember Linaro, but that might have been ARM (which we also supported). I don't recall Prpl.
