"The world's leading developers of real time and embedded Linux implementations, gathered together this week for the Real Time Linux Workshop (at the University of Technology in Vienna, Austria), have reached consensus on standardizing a real time ''application programming interface'' (API) which will vastly expand the use of Linux in non-desktop real time and embedded applications. The proposed embedded and real time API is based on Cygnus' EL/IX. The result is expected to be a Linux implementation that can handle the performance-critical and mission-critical requirements of non-desktop, ''real world'' applications for Linux."
"If this EL/IX based approach succeeds, it will accelerate the already growing acceptance of Linux in the embedded and real-time systems market...."
