"Lineo, the leading developer of embedded Linux system software, today announced that it reached an agreement to acquire Rt-Control Inc., founders and maintainers of the popular uClinux operating system, a version of Linux for microcontrollers. The combination of the two companies provides developers a broader spectrum of embedded Linux solutions for both low-end and high-end embedded devices at a significantly lower cost."

"This acquisition adds support for microcontrollers to Lineo Embedix, Lineo's line of embedded Linux system software. Lineo anticipates that this will increase demand for Linux in an area historically believed to be unsupportable by Linux."

"The combination of the technologies from Lineo and Rt-Control opens up the ability for developers to put Linux on devices that would otherwise be cost prohibitive," said Bryan Sparks, CEO of Lineo, Inc. "As a result, consumers will see Linux in many more devices including cell phones and automobiles."
