Linux ported to Atmel's ATmega microcontrollers

Programmer Dmitry Grinberg has achieved the seemingly impossible: Linux on an eight-bit microcontroller.

This is a triumph, a huge success!

Atmel AVR's are great, very easy to program for, who needs RPi

Writing CPU emulator != porting.
Second to last paragraph: there is no such thing as ATmega1268P.

For the purposes of this exercise, "getting X software to run on Y" is functionally equivalent to "porting."

The term "porting" implies the alteration of software for it to run in different target environment. In this case the software - Ubuntu OS - was not altered, but rather another software layer was added.

Would it be okay to say "the car was made to go over water" if the said car was only parked on a ferry?
While the expression is technically correct it implies an entirely different meaning.

If you bought the car and got the ferry too, yes.

just think how much more usable if he used something like arch linux or gentoo with LXDE then this would probably be usable to the point of being a little practical. ditch the gui altogether and you've basically got a really cheap beaglebone.

although maybe not completely practical, this is some awesome work. way to prove dozens of people wrong.

a car analogy to this is "he made the car run on an engine made from paperclips, glue and washing up bottles! 0-0.60 is quoted as 3.4 hours"

Pretty cool but not very practical. Certainly shows how versatile Linux is though.
