"Hot on the heels of the unveilings of Transmeta's Mobile Linux and Lineo's Embedix, Red Hat Inc. is joining the embedded-system fray with its Red Hat Tools for Embedded Developers.

RHTED is an open-source IDE (integrated development environment) for software developers. It uses any Linux operating system to develop embedded Linux programs for most computing devices.
