"Hello and welcome to the first edition of the weekly AllLinuxDevices news roundup. We plan to keep you informed of big events in the embedded Linux world from week to week. If you have a tip, a suggestion, or a comment, pass it along to the editor or check out the reader submission form at AllLinuxDevices."

"AllLinuxDevices kicked off operations with a feature by Michael Hall about the new handhelds.org web site, sponsored by Compaq. handhelds.org is just part of Compaq's broader committment to getting the tools Free/Open Source Software developers need to make Linux-on-the-handheld a reality."

"Everyone loves an underdog story, and Indrema's run on the home gaming console industry is one to follow. Not content to allow Sony, Sega, Microsoft, and Nintendo to squabble over the immense home-gaming pie, Indrema is wading in with a Linux-based system that includes MP3 and DVD players. The system is also expandable and upgradable, which is an interesting twist to the generally-limited gaming console market. Gamers.com speculates that the Indrema will prompt more game development for Linux in general, which is a hopeful thought for those of us already wearing holes in our Quake III CD's."
