| One story not told often enough involves Linux’ growing domination of the
| embedded market.

| 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.
