,----[ Quote ]
| By leveraging MontaVista Software's Linux technology, RipCode was able to
| bring RipCode V4 -- designed to process the highest volume of Internet-based

Analysis: Linux versus RTOS

,----[ Quote ]
| The increasing diversity of real-time development tools and device
| application requirements has made life more complicated for developers.
| Determining whether to use an RTOS or Linux to meet real-time requirements
| should not be an additional source of risk.
|
| Moving to Linux has some key advantages in cost and scale and can provide
| significant advantages in many situations. Depending on the application
| requirements, even for hard real-time applications, there are several
| different ways to access the open source advantages of Linux.

Why Linux won the embedded market?

,----[ Quote ]
| One story not told often enough involves Linux’ growing domination of the
| embedded market.
|
| In this space Linux usually stacks up against older Real Time Operating
| Systems (RTOS). The decision by Wind River, the largest RTOS vendor, to
| migrate toward Linux was a turning point.
|
| There has been no turning back. But this is not an open source story. In
| fact, the embedded Linux business looks a lot like the rest of the embedded
| market.
