Wind River and Red Hat unite on embedded Linux

Open-source software distributor Red Hat and embedded systems developer Wind River have announced a partnership intended to drive
Linux more deeply into the market for embedded operating systems.

Embedded operating systems are typically used in small, specialised devices such as telecoms equipment, mobile phones or domestic appliances, which
require simpler, lighter software than PCs.

Wind River is a veteran of the embedded software market, but the position of its VxWorks system is threatened by Linux's highly componentised
architecture, which enables it to be stripped down for use in embedded operating systems.
