Driving Mr. Tux -- Linux takes on automotive apps

Metrowerks has set out to drive Linux further into the automotive telematics market by launching what it calls "Automotive Grade Linux," a version of the open source operating system enhanced with non-traditional features to address the specific requirements of automotive telematics. In entering the automotive telematics market, Metrowerks can expect to face stiff competition from Microsoft, which has aggressively pursued that market for several years; but Metrowerks is counting on its close relationship with parent company and automotive telematics chip leader Freescale to help its Linux-based solution succeed.
