    The Secret Life of Embedded Linux

    | Manufacturers have to weigh sometimes competing factors when selecting
    | Linux over Windows or a proprietary OS in consumer products. Often,
    | the flexibility of Linux balances out those differences, sometimes
    | it does not.
    |
    | Clearly, though, Linux's freedom and flexibility are driving the
    | trend to putting Linux inside consumer products that are not
    | encumbered with hardware restrictions. Manufacturers are not
    | dependent on a single vendor with Linux.
    |
    | "Linux is a moving trend. More and more manufacturers are using
    | it," concluded MontaVista's Ready.
    |
    | Yaghmour concurs. "Every engineer adapts it and expands the user
    | base," he said. "Anybody who wants to enter the market is using
    | Linux due to its low cost. It is hard to justify changing for a
    | proprietary OS."

    And exactly what do you expect a company to say about their product?
    That nobody wants it?

    The Schestowitz idiocy continues into another day.

    And yet when Microsoft claims that they either own the PC market or
    have shipped 25 trillion X-Boxes you and DFS hold hands and sing
    kumbaya down by the river side.

    The Goldfarb hypocrisy strikes again

    If you are going to troll, at least try and disguise your trolls.

    MS doesn't claim they own the PC market; they do own the PC market. For 12
    years at least.

    And Linux can't do a thing about it. You can't bribe people with free
    crapware. You can't get them to switch by lying about Windows. So just
    take your beatdown like a good hypocrite.

    You jealous that Moshe has a good voice and plays the piano well?
