"This was probably the most productive day of the whole conference. Significant proposals were discussed and the path forward planned for the next year."
"The day started with Stuart Hughes of Zentropix who used some example code to explain the differences between the RTAI and RTL API's. He also explained the need to have a strategy to support the original simple API found in RTL V1 and RTAI as well as supporting the EL/IX initiative by Cygnus for those needing a portable POSIX approach."
"Manfred Hollstein of Cygnus then covered the role and objectives of EL/IX. This effort seeks to define a POSIX/ISO API which have different levels of compliance, ranging from deeply embedded appliances (running eCos), to full scale Linux desktop machines. This should aid portability, and make development and deployment simpler."
