Free Electrons’ Michael Opdenacker summed up the latest kernel shrinkage schemes as well as future possibilities at the Embedded Linux Conference.

Shrinking the Linux Kernel and File System for IoT

At last year’s Embedded Linux Conference Europe, Sony’s Tim Bird warned that the stalled progress in reducing Linux kernel size meant that Linux was ceding the huge market in IoT edge nodes to real-time operating systems (RTOSes). At this February’s ELC North America event, another figure who has...
