The ARM architecture is springing up all over. From smart-phones to tablets to Rasp-Pi to now ...

An open multi-core architecture

If there's a native FASM for the ARM architecture I'm sure many would be trying out FASM in all types of projects.

There is no native ARM version of fasm.

The main problems I foresee are the lack of standardisation for OSes and the lack of information on the hardware.

An additional problem is that many of the manufacturers like to lock everything down so a user has (almost) no chance to do anything useful. Some systems (like the phones) do not support running native code, only things like Java can be run.

[sarcasm]Of course it is all for your own "protection" and "security".[/sarcasm]

Check the link above.

It's reportedly an open project.

Yeah I saw, I know what it is. But it is one of many different projects. There are literally hundreds, it is just that this one seems to get good publicity. If it becomes some sort of pseudo-standard then that would be great, but don't hold your breath waiting for such a thing to happen.

But don't let me dissuade you from writing a native version for ARM. It would be great to see one.
