Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

"One Hundred Percent Pure Linux - Open Source and Royalty Free."

"MontaVista Software Inc., developer of the Hard HatTM Linux® operating system for embedded applications, today announces the version 1.0 release of the company's Hard Hat Linux distribution. Hard Hat Linux, based entirely on the standard Linux kernel and open-source components and royalty-free, is optimized for embedded applications, including communications infrastructure and Internet appliances...."

"MontaVista Software President and CEO Jim Ready, the originator of VRTX®, the first viable commercial embedded operating system, comments, "In the past, proprietary embedded kernels were touted for their supposedly unique ability to address embedded systems needs. Today we see Linux occupying every niche in the embedded systems space, from 'deeply embedded' resource-limited systems to well-outfitted high- end CompactPCI-based designs, without the need for proprietary closed-source, royalty-bearing kernels or extensions."
