"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."
