"Transmeta plans to release its version of the Linux operating system for Internet appliances and other devices as early as next week so that developers can begin testing it. The chipmaker is preparing to post Mobile Linux, its take on the Linux OS, under the General Public License (GNU) process in the near future, company representatives said this week. Although the exact release date isn't set, the release could come next week or the week after."
"The once-secretive company, located in Santa Clara, Calif., has intended all along to release Mobile Linux to the open-source community. ... The company, however, chose to wait until it got to a point where it was satisfied with the OS, said Dan Quinlan, an engineer with the company."
"Quinlan would not comment on the details of the release's timing but said Transmeta will post the OS to its Web site soon. ... "We want to put it out there in a way that's useful to people. We're going to be putting it out on our Web site, and we're going to try to put it up in a way that people can download it and use it and send us feedback," Quinlan said."
