It's not stupid question. ARM processors are widely used today. Please
see here: http://www.arm.com/markets/showcase/index.php What is more,
many hobbyists use ARMs in their hobby life.

But that the device uses ARM processor doesn't exactly mean that you'll
be able to run armedslack on it. There are many kinds of ARMs, some of
which aren't able to run Linux at all. Furthermore, armedslack requires
some resources, I mean the memory. Most (?) of the consumer devices
powered by ARMs has as little memory as is just enough to run
proprietary manufacturer firmware, so to little for armedslack to run on
it. But sometimes you'll find device that has enough memory and the
processor is well suited to run Linux. Then you can run armedslack on
it. But here begins the best story, that is how to put armedslack on the
