I, for one, welcome our new SH4 embedded overlords.

by Miguel de Icaza

ST Microelectronics, the maintainers of GCC-CIL (the GCC code generator backend that produces ECMA CIL bytecodes for Mono/.NET) have announced their port of Mono to the SH4 platform.

The code is currently available from http://code.google.com/p/mono-sh4/.

In addition to the MIPS64 port that I mentioned last week from SiCortex/nIX is now being merged into Mono's repository.

MIPS apparently is not only used in super computers, but apparently is also powering $169 dollar netbooks.
