"Lynx Real-Time Systems, Inc., has announced an open-source
product and support services initiative that is intended to extend
the Lynx real-time operating system (RTOS) - and Lynx as a company
-- into the emerging embedded Linux market space...."
"Although the Lynx Linux Initiative clearly comes in response to
the challenge posed by the rapidly growing interest in using Linux
in embedded applications, Lynx CEO Bill Hogan emphasizes that his
company's new Linux initiative in no way represents any retreat
from its core product, LynxOS. Instead, Hogan positions LynxOS and
BlueCat Linux as complementary -- rather than competitive --
products, which will result in a broader market for Lynx
"LynxOS 4.0 is expected to add Linux binary application
compatibility while retaining the real time performance and other
characteristics of today's LynxOS. According to the company, this
will include portability of Linux drivers, protocol stacks, and
other software applications. In effect, Lynx is building a Linux
binary API -- or, more correctly, a Linux-compatible "Application
Binary Interface" (ABI) -- into LynxOS 4.0, allowing Linux
application binaries to run on LynxOS target systems without
modification or recompiling."
