"Lineo(TM), Inc., the leading developer of embedded Linux(R) system software(TM), today announced Lineo Embedix(TM) PDA, a Windows CE(R)-compatible embedded Linux software solution. Embedix PDA will provide a Windows CE-compatible layer on top of Lineo Embedix Linux, allowing Windows CE applications to be easily ported to Lineo Embedix Linux, a stable, compact and low-cost OS."

"Additionally, Lineo also announced a new development center in Seattle, Wash. Product Development of Embedix PDA will take place at this new site, scheduled to open March 2000."

"Although Microsoft has not captured a majority position in the embedded market, it has encouraged a large number of companies to develop applications for the Windows CE platform," said Bryan Sparks, CEO of Lineo, Inc. "We believe that OEMs of Windows CE solutions will be enticed to migrate to Lineo Embedix Linux which we believe to be a more stable, lower cost embedded OS base for PDAs and other devices running Windows CE applications."
