Lemote support is relevant if you can get Loongson CPUs and want their
outdated distros.  Projects like WebKit and Mozilla have much more
support for ARM and there are now standard SIMD instruction sets
supported on ARM: there is existing video acceleration on CPU, while
it's mostly missing on MIPS or supports only CPU extensions that
Loongson doesn't have.

For ARM there are many cheap development boards (single board computers)
and many big companies contributing code for use in Android.  GPU blobs
will be an issue unless you choose some specific ARM chips with free
reverse engineered drivers (or future Loongson CPUs which could use
them).
