"Motorola Computer Group (MCG), a division of Motorola, ...announced major moves into the Linux business market this week at LinuxWorld in San Jose... ...disclosed what it calls a Unified Linux Strategy, 'that will provide its OEM (original equipment manufacturer) customers with a broad selection of Linux-based platforms, open source software, service and support, training, and integration services'..."
"As part of its first Linux-based offerings, MCG will introduce the emS Series for telecommunications,office and industrial networking applications. Additionally, a featured product of the newly announced strategy is the SLX Series network appliance, aimed at Internet, intranet and extranet networking applications."
"Unlike many of the other larger computer companies that have given Linux a vote of confidence -- which include Dell, HP, IBM, Intel and Oracle -- MCG is moving on the embedded devices market, bringing to it the power of cost-effective benefits of open-source, and cutting a unique presence in the consumer market."
