Qualcomm says chipsets will support Linux

Hey! Check this out! There's a report over on EETimes that says that:

Qualcomm Inc. announced Thursday (May 5) it would support the Linux operating system on its Mobile Station Modem MSM6550 chipsets.

Qualcomm (San Diego, Calif.), expects the initiative to give handset makers additional design and development efficiencies for 3G smartphones and other mobile handsets. The chipsets' integrated Linux support eliminates the need for a separate co-processor and lowers design costs and complexity compared to multiple-chip implementations now required for a third-party operating system.

Which reminds me of that groovy little "Switch to Linux" video which I mentioned a couple of days ago!
