"According to Lineo CEO Bryan Sparks, the partnerships 'will encourage the broad deployment of Internet appliances and other embedded devices throughout the Asian market, including countries like mainland China, India and others, where traditional PCs have not experienced a high rate of adoption among small businesses and home consumers.'

Lineo also announced the establishment of a development and testing center that will be based out of its existing Taiwan sales office. Embedix, which is based on the Caldera Systems OpenLinux distribution, allows OEM developers to test and implement embedded Linux on their specific hardware solutions."

"Lineo has forecasted that Linux technology will emerge as a dominant force in the overall Asia-Pacific Internet access market, pushing embedded solutions to the top of the desktop market. 'The year 2000 is the year of embedded Linux,' added Sparks."
