"Is Linux inside your consumer electronics device?

"Linux is increasingly becoming the primary embedded operating system for a myriad of consumer electronics devices, including eBook readers, TVs, mobile phone and media players. To date, one of the primary organizations helping to lead Linux for consumer electronics has been the Consumer Electronics Linux Forum (CELF). CELF is now being merged with the Linux Foundation in an effort to help further integrate and expand the Linux ecosystem.

""The demand for Linux in the consumer electronics and embedded markets has been accelerating for a decade now, but we've hit a tipping point where it is now both the fastest growing area of computing and one of the biggest growth opportunities for Linux," Jim Zemlin, executive director at The Linux Foundation told InternetNews.com. "CELF and The Linux Foundation have been collaborating on their annual technical conference for the last two years and we worked well together. We think it makes sense now to combine forces since Linux in the embedded space is growing so rapidly."

"The Linux Foundation has been a leading voice in the Linux industry since it was formed in 2007 after succeeding Open Source Development Labs (OSDL). The Linux Foundation is also the employer of Linus Torvalds, creator of Linux."
