EL/IX finds a home on NetSilicon SoCs

Author: JT Smith

LinuxDevices reports: "Ever since Cygnus proposed EL/IX in the Fall of 1999, few companies -- other than Red Hat, which acquired
Cygnus late last year -- have committed to supporting the would-be embedded OS standard. Many Embedded
Linux companies have privately speculated that Red Hat's primary motivation for promoting EL/IX as a Linux
application program interface (API) has really been to create the opportunity for applications to migrate from
Linux to eCos ("Red Hat's other open source OS") which, like EL/IX, Red Hat inherited through its acquisition of
Cygnus."
