AllLinuxDevices: Lineo response to Microsoft XP Embedded article

Dec 20, 2001, 02:15 (0 Talkback[s])
(Other stories by Tim Bird, Dave Beal)

AllLinuxDevices has the complete text of Lineo's response to Microsoft regarding a recent MS comparison sheet between embedded Linux and embedded Windows XP. The response is not geared to the general claims about Linux as much as the specific points raised regarding Lineo, which figured prominently in the comparison:

"Historically, such comparisons from Microsoft have consistently attempted to show negative elements about a competitor's solution while ignoring Microsoft's own shortcomings altogether.

In this paper, the Microsoft authors seemingly forgot to address the relevant community of intelligent and capable software engineers, device manufacturers and media editors who would care about embedded system software. The content and spin of this Microsoft paper seems to assume an audience unfamiliar with competitive offerings and speaks to the level of Microsoft's usual "white paper" audience of people who use their home computer to surf the Internet, swap audio files and occasionally use a word processor."
