"Developers of embedded-Linux systems established some common ground at a gathering last week, as they laid the foundation to build common threads among their various efforts and also decided to back Cygnus Solutions' EL/IX as a common applications programming interface (API) for embedded Linux."
"Nearly 100 developers and programmers attended the grass-roots Real Time Linux Workshop here last week, and all but one voted to proceed with the use of EL/IX as their API."
"At the heart of the workshop was the perceived need to prevent real-time Linux efforts from fragmenting. Given Linux's open-source nature and the sudden surge in embedded systems using the OS, some developers are worried that incompatible versions of the OS might crop up."
