"Lineo has released the first version of its Linux operating system called Embedix, which is targeted at embedded systems and will compete with Microsoft's Windows CE operating system in a wide range of high volume consumer electronics devices."
"Embedded versions of Linux could prove key in consumer electronics devices whose low price means that manufacturers of such devices need a very low cost operating system and often cannot justify Microsoft's relatively high licensing costs for Windows CE."
