LynuxWorks is shipping BlueCat Linux 5.0, its first production release based on Linux kernel 2.6. LynuxWorks calls the release "the industry's first
commercially available embedded Linux distribution based on Linux 2.6," although SnapGear earlier released a free embedded Linux distribution based on
2.6 which it claimed represented the "world's first production Linux system powered by the 2.6 kernel."
