EMJ Embedded Systems Friday rolled out White Dwarf Linux 1.0,
which is ideal for Net appliances and wireless applications.
Named for a white dwarf star, a small but extremely dense star,
White Dwarf linux is small enough to load on embedded PCs but dense
enough to contain the features embedded applications demand.
The new product was designed to ease the cost of developing
embedded applications. Based on the most recent Linux kernel,
2.2.14, version 1.0 contains more than 40 software packages
including a Web browser, an Apache 1.3.11 Web server and e-mail
Features of White Dwarf 1.0 include:
A fully graphical package-based installer that allows
developers to choose the exact features they need for their
TCP/ip tools including ftp, telnet, ping, hostname, ftpd,
"Linux is the wave of the future when it comes to embedded
applications," said Jim Estill, EMJ president. "Because wd
linux is open source, developers have the ability to modify their
applications whenever they want. Gone are the days of paying huge
licensing fees for a proprietary operating system."
