Linux in Embedded Systems - The Windows side of the story
A few days ago I posted an article from Cots Journal Online which discussed some of the shortcomings of Linux use in embedded systems. Based on some of the comments posted back to the blog it would appear that Linux is used because of the community which surrounds it rather than for the technical merits of the operating system and tools ? for someone that?s lived in the embedded space before working at Microsoft I find this somewhat surprising ? I based my choice of processor, components, and (if needed) operating system on the technical merits of the operating system and tools.
