Embedded 2003: The Long Arm of Linux

Linux had a hand in many of the major embedded stories of 2003, though not always directly.

One of the most interesting and significant developments of the year was the flip-flop of Wind River Systems Inc.'s position on Linux. The company
that for years had condemned the open-source development model and its GPL now belongs to Open Source Developer Labs and Eclipse.org, two
organizations committed to advancing the platform and its tools. And while Wind River has been a member of the Embedded Linux Consortium since its
formation, its anti-Linux position over the years had at times brought its motivation for membership into question. Any such questions have now been
answered.
