Lineo rebuttal to Microsoft attack on embedded Linux, Part 2
Author: JT Smith
Anonymous Reader writes, "Lineo has issued a further rebuttal to a paper posted by Microsoft on its website, in which Microsoft asserts that Windows XP Embedded is superior to Embedded Linux. Earlier this week, Lineo issued an initial response countering many of the specific statements made by Microsoft in its anti Embedded Linux paper, as did LynuxWorks. In this additional rebuttal, Lineo identifies the key characteristics that are important in comparing operating systems intended for use in the embedded market, and offers a differing perspective (from that of Microsoft) on how Windows XP Embedded and Embedded Linux compare.
