"CEO Jim Ready elected to board; Engineering VP Kevin Morgan Pro-Tem Chair."

"MontaVista, Inc., developer of the Hard Hat Linux operating system for embedded applications, today affirmed the election of company CEO and president Jim Ready to the board of the Embedded Linux Consortium (ELC). Jim joins five other executives from the embedded Linux community on the board, which heads up the ELC membership of 89 companies, including IBM, Motorola, National Semiconductor, Red Hat, and others."

"Jim Ready's embedded systems and Linux® credentials stand out even among the impressive array of recently elected ELC board members and the ELC membership at large. Jim is best known for founding Ready Systems, developers of VRTX, the first widely deployed commercial real-time operating system (RTOS). In its twenty-year lifetime, VRTX formed the foundation for thousands of applications. VRTX was used in industrial control, instrumentation, networking, telecommunications, defense, and notably, mission-critical military and civilian aviation systems. It was the only RTOS ever to achieve FAA DO-178B flight certification."
