"Lynx expects to release BlueCat Linux by June of next year. This version of Linux will be able to support embedded and hard real time applications (as opposed to pseudo-real time applications) and will be released as open source.

What is significant about this announcement is that Lynx is already a vendor of a POSIX-compliant, real-time operating system and so clearly has some experience to bring to the party."

"Microsoft have already proved beyond doubt that the concept of a one-size-fits-all operating system is fatally flawed. However Linux has already proved itself as a capable, general-purpose operating system. If Lynx can demonstrate its credentials in the embedded market, this will further reinforce acceptance of open source Linux in other areas."
