7TDMI was/is extremely prolific, it is everywhere (such as in CSR/SiRF
GPS chips, SD cards, hard disks, a lot of sensors and what not).

That said I have never seen one of these systems with enough memory
to boot a recent Linux kernel. I think with the failure to push the kernel
footprint down (due to lack of interest) they don't really have a future as
Linux targets. They all run $small_os.
