Video: ARM Video Presentation of Booting uClinux/Linux

For a demo of how easy it is to get an ARM based virtual platform that boots a Linux operating system and a quick walk through downloading and running the applications please watch the video below. It shows an ARM Integrator platform incorporating an ARM926EJ-S booting Linux 2.6 and an ARM7DTMI in an Atmel AT91SAM7 booting uClinux. After watching you can download these virtual platforms from the panel on the right. (Note that since this video was recorded the OVPworld website has been redesigned and so browsing this site will be slightly different. We will update this video shortly.)

This video has several sections. Its contents are listed after the image below. Click on the section links to view the video from the start of that section.
