Opinion: It's all MontaVista's fault

Author: JT Smith

From a LinuxDevices column: "

In my opinion it's all MontaVista's fault! The problem began when they announced a 'fully
preemptable hard real-time Linux kernel.'

Then came the debate about whether their kernel was or was not fully preemptable, and
whether or not it was truly hard real-time. But that's not where the debate ends. Nobody
thought of questioning another aspect of MontaVista's release -- namely: had they spelled
'preemptable' correctly?"
