The openSUSE member who were allowed to vote decided that openSUSE does
not want to run on
those “little devices”. http://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Strategy says:
openSUSE does not:

Work on Mobile or embedded devices.

The future

The team noted that the

strategy is of course not set in stone for eternity although we
probably won’t go through this process every year…

and asked for further feedback in the mass mailing to the membership. Some
comments did indeed come in, most notably asking for the ARM port and
mobile devices as well as the impact of the openSUSE Foundation.

In the future, the strategy documents will surely require some revision.
Once somebody in the openSUSE community steps up to do an ARM port, which
is likely to attract significant help, the document will have to be
revisited to reflect this, just like Tumbleweed resulted in a change.
