"MontaVista, developer of Hard Hat Linux for embedded devices, and Century Software, a Web-to-host desktop and networking developer, have joined forces to create "the first freely-available, Open Source Web browser targeted specifically at the embedded Linux platform," according to a joint company release."

"The browser, ViewML (Viewable Markup Language), accelerates development and deployment of browser-enabled devices, such as hand-held computers, navigation systems, smart phones and set-top boxes, the release explained...."

"The X Window System, of course, brings great portability across a vast array of machine architectures, and a large set of already running applications. There has been a lot of work lately at bringing the size of the X Window System down considerably for embedded devices. For even smaller devices, and for applications not desiring the complexity of X and all that comes with it, the Microwindows Project is a great choice."
