"Linux-related properties might be bouncing all over the place on the stock market, but that didn't prevent Internet media giant ZDNet from grabbing LinuxDevices.com, a 6-month-old website that bills itself as the "The Embedded Linux Portal."

"Neither company specified the terms of the sale, but in a press release announcing the acquisition, ZDNet president Dan Rosenweig described LinuxDevices.com, which publishes stories and releases related to the Linux embedded market, as a 'killer site' and praised site creator Rick Lehrbaum."

"The authority of his content as the last word on embedded Linux applications and devices is underscored by LinuxDevices.com's sponsor list,' Rosenweig said, describing the companies on that list -- companies such as Lineo, Motorola, Linuxcare, and Monta Vista Software -- as a 'who's who' of the embedded Linux market."
