Wind River Advances Embedded Linux

“Intel’s Wind River software division is out this week with a
new embedded Linux release that adds new carrier grade and workflow
capabilities to the platform.

“Wind River entered the Linux space in 2004 as an optional
alternative embedded operating system to its own VxWorks embedded
system. With Wind River Linux 4.0, the company is building on some
of its past systems by extending real-time Linux capabilities. One
such real-time capability comes in the form of the preempt_rt Linux

“”Wind River Linux has supported PREEMPT_RT in various
configurations since Wind River Linux 2.0 platforms,” Paul
Anderson, vice president of marketing and strategy for Linux
products at Wind River told InternetNews.com. “We’ve continued
this, but extended our support to include ARM and MIPS reference
configurations. Wind River has integrated the latest stabilized
features in the preempt_rt tree into our 2.6.34 kernel.”
