"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."
