RTLinux patent knocks over first domino?

Anonymous Reader writes "LinuxDevices reports that embedded linux vendor Lineo has caved in to Victor Yodaiken
and become the first software company to publicly announce the licensing
of Yodaiken's patented process for running a general purpose operating
system (such as Linux) as a task under a real-time kernel (such as RTLinux or RTAI). There's a special
report
at LinuxDevices ... There's an interesting quote where Yodaiken claims his patent will
help open source."
