I've definitely run Pd on embedded devices for several hours under  
intense use.  For example, Pd on old iPods and Palm Pilots in  
installations.  No one has built Gem for ARM that I know of, but if  
you are running Debian/Arm it should just be a matter of running the  
compile, in theory.  I'm guessing there will be some random issues tho.

Terrorism is not an enemy.  It cannot be defeated.  It's a tactic.   
It's about as sensible to say we declare war on night attacks and  
expect we're going to win that war.  We're not going to win the war on  
terrorism.        - retired U.S. Army general, William Odom
