For a long time, Linux has been trying to convince most people (that is, mostly home and business users) that Linux on the desktop is a good alternative to Windows. Linux has already established an outstanding reputation in the server room, so system administrators are already convinced of the virtues of Linux. All that can be considered "Linux, open and above board". What about "Linux under the hood"? By that I mean, what about the virtues of embedded Linux systems? What about Linux running "in everything from cell phones to car ABS systems and water-filtration plants..."? That's what Yaghmour, et al proposes to teach you in this book.
