Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"EDN Magazine Distributes 138,000 Copies of MontaVista
Software Embedded Linux Tool Kit With June 2000 Issue."
"MontaVista, Inc., developer of the Hard Hat(TM) Linux operating
system for embedded applications, today celebrated the release of
Hard Hat Linux, Journeyman Edition, a special distribution of the
company's embedded Linux Cross Development Kit to accompany the
June issue and cover story of EDN Magazine."
"The cover story, entitled "Linux strafes the embedded
landscape", details how mainstream Linux functionality and
ubiquitous 32-bit CPU technology are challenging the status quo in
embedded systems design."
"Linux's recent popularity coincides with a fundamental change
in the embedded-system landscape," comments Warren Web, EDN
technical editor and cover story author. "For years, designers have
struggled with under-powered, stand-alone CPUs. Now, the cost of
32-bit processors has fallen to the point at which designers can
consider them for all but the simplest applications."
