"MontaVista, Inc. has announced a pSOS-to-Linux rescue
mission, in the form of a transition kit that facilitates the
porting of pSOS applications to Linux. The effort follows the
recent announcement by embedded RTOS leader Wind River of a plan to
transition its pSOS customers to VxWorks and phase out pSOS
support. (Wind River acquired pSOS developer Integrated Systems
Inc. in 1998. pSOS and VxWorks are real-time operating systems for
embedded system applications.)"
"The pSOS-to-Linux transition kit is being made available as an
open source project, based at www.psos2linux.org. MontaVista
expects the kit's functionality and coverage to grow with
participation from the existing pSOS user base."
