@boilingsteam this may sound like a dumb question, but will RISC-V hardware be able to run regular Linux applications?

Follow

@lps as long as the sources are available and the compiler supports it. Yes.

@lps note there are certain software like Darktable which requires specific x86 instructions that are not supported on ARM or other arch so ymmv

@boilingsteam @lps And there is things that do not bootstrap (ie. Rust) where non-x86 architectures tend to be an issue.
