"The recent Linux "acquisition feeding frenzy" continues, as Coollogic, Inc. (Dallas, TX) announces that it has acquired ON Channel, Inc. (Davis, Calif.), a leader in embedded Linux development, for an undisclosed sum. Both companies are privately held. ON Channel also is announcing today that it has released -- and is actually shipping -- one of the first commercial "real-world" embedded Linux applications."

"Coollogic is a full-spectrum provider of Internet Ready appliances and software systems, with a focus on delivering high volumes of private-branded network appliances into large vertical markets including network printing appliances, routers, and control systems. ON Channel, Inc. is one of the first companies to ship embedded Linux open source software solutions targeted towards Internet appliance and industrial device markets."

"As a result of its acquisition of ON Channel, Coollogic now has two major products: a hardware platform, the "E-Pilot" network appliance; and a Linux based software platform, the "ON Channel 2000" operating system."
