Analysis: How to get Linux to boot in one second

Mar 05, 2010, 14:02 (1 Talkback[s])

"MontaVista Software has always been a leader in embedded-Linux commercialization. The company has developed Linux-development platforms since 1999, when founder Jim Ready pledged to bring "100% pure Linux" to the world under the GNU (GNU's not Unix) GPL (general public license). Since then, MontaVista has specialized in embedded and real-time Linux.

"Its approach is not simply an RTOS (real-time operating system) that runs Linux as one of its tasks. The company has changed the Linux kernel to provide determinism and real-time performance in a real Linux operating system. Cavium Networks recently acquired the company, which just announced the release of Version 6 of its operating system.

"In addition to designing real-time Linux, MontaVista has been working on the development of real-fast Linux, a Linux operating system that boots in less than 1 second."
