VDC Releases Embedded Linux Research

,----[ Quote ]
| According to a recently published research by Venture Development Corporation
| (VDC), embedded systems manufacturers and their suppliers are driving the
| development of open source and industry-specific standards around Linux as a
| means to increase availability of more robust underlying solution platforms
| and development environments. The new standards enable OEMs to reduce
| development costs and time-to-market while at the same time keeping pace with
| the advancing and unique requirements of the customers.

| EDC noted that some 40 percent of the survey's 500 respondents were targeting
| embedded Linux.

| Also in the earlier reports, Andrews observed that the need for RTOS source
| code was "one of the reasons that proprietary RTOSes created in-house for a
| specific system have long been popular, and now it's a primary motivating
| factor in the adoption of Embedded Linux."
| The now completed survey results are said to include "expert analysis" from
| Ann Thryft, a 20-year industry veteran. The report includes chapters on
| platforms, processors, tools, languages, security, target devices, mobile
| development, and of course, Linux.
