"Give Matt Szulik some credit. When it comes to plotting his
company's course in the still-up-for-grabs embedded Linux market,
the Red Hat (RHAT) chief executive doesn't follow the crowd."
"That is, unless the crowd includes the CEOs of some of the
world's largest device manufacturers."
"Our approach to the embedded Linux marketplace is
nontraditional," says Szulik, who credits recent sit-downs with
executives at Sony (SNE) and other major embedded device players
for shaping his worldview."
