Software / BSP Building with ARM Soc/Linux OS

I have been learning the development flow using altera tools the last few weeks. So far I understand how to design NIOSII based hardware using Qsys, add FPGA connections using Quartus, then build the BSP and application software with microCII/OS using the niosII IDE for Eclipse. 

 

My question is: 

Will the BSP generation, linux OS, and application interface for the ARM Soc/Linux OS be as tightly integrated as NIOSII/microCOS IDE for eclipse? 

 

Right now, we use vxwokrs on a VXI front end, which requires us to use software tools that are not integrated with altera. Building a BSP and using debugging tools that are not integrated with Altera is tough, and we would like to move away from that design flow. We like the NiosII design flow, but we would like to use the ARM soc with a linux OS. 

 

Thanks for any replies,

I think I may have answered my own question. The DS-5 Altera may have what I'm looking for.
