Let's put it bluntly: embedded Linux doesn't exist. Embedded Linux is the stuff of glitzy announcements, hype, and other marketing mumbo jumbo. That
is, at least, the conclusion I am forced to reach after having spent two years writing a book about the use of Linux in embedded systems, which is an
entirely different subject. For had I written a book about "Embedded Linux," it would most certainly have been prime material for Marketing 101.
