"Lynx Real-Time Systems, Inc., has announced an open-source product and support services initiative that is intended to extend the Lynx real-time operating system (RTOS) - and Lynx as a company -- into the emerging embedded Linux market space...."

"Although the Lynx Linux Initiative clearly comes in response to the challenge posed by the rapidly growing interest in using Linux in embedded applications, Lynx CEO Bill Hogan emphasizes that his company's new Linux initiative in no way represents any retreat from its core product, LynxOS. Instead, Hogan positions LynxOS and BlueCat Linux as complementary -- rather than competitive -- products, which will result in a broader market for Lynx products...."

"LynxOS 4.0 is expected to add Linux binary application compatibility while retaining the real time performance and other characteristics of today's LynxOS. According to the company, this will include portability of Linux drivers, protocol stacks, and other software applications. In effect, Lynx is building a Linux binary API -- or, more correctly, a Linux-compatible "Application Binary Interface" (ABI) -- into LynxOS 4.0, allowing Linux application binaries to run on LynxOS target systems without modification or recompiling."
