Intel has had several RISC chips (eg i960), but Itanium is VLIW (ie not RISC or CISC).

Certainly it can be argued that it's AMD's fault for the current dominance of x86, but it's also true that none of the other architectures were cheap enough for the general populace to adopt, hence the abundance of ARM nowadays and POWER, SPARC, and currently on life support

Someone mod the parent post up. Linux 2.6 is bigger than Linux 2.4. systemd is also much larger than init.

From my router:

root@Linksys E1200 v1:/sbin# ls -Fsl init
        12 -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 12635 May 27 2013 init*

12KB for init vs. 1.3MB for systemd. systemd privides no tangible benefit over init for a router (or at least to justify its size increase).

I ran into this issue since I'm on AT&T. Originally bought a Samsung Galaxy
  S 5 and promptly returned it because it's currently not rootable. So then I bought an HTC One M8 when I found out there's manufacturer support for rooting. You can also wait for the Cyanogemod Official phone (looks pretty nice too)

Forty two.
