From ZDNet UK:
"Linux is set to become the de facto standard in so-called "embedded" devices like robotics, information appliances and automobile information systems,
but fragmentation could prove a stumbling block, according to Inder Singh, chairman of the Embedded Linux Consortium (ELC).
Linux is the only choice for product designers who want a powerful, open system and to still have some control over the choices they make, Singh said,
but the lack of a rigid standard could drive companies to Windows CE if the situation isn't addressed."
