"Metro Link, Inc. (www.metrolink.com) CTO Garry Paxinos and Technical Director Stuart Anderson will speak at the LinuxWorld Conference & Expo in San Jose, CA on the advantages of using the X Window System in embedded systems on Thursday, August 17 from 10:30 to 11:45 am."

"In their presentation, Paxinos and Anderson will explain the flexibility, reliability, and portability that make the choice of embedding X ideal for use in consumer electronics, such as set-top boxes, and other embedded systems. "Most system designers think that X is too large to consider for their embedded application, but there are many ways to reduce it to a very usable size," said Paxinos. "Once the size issue is out of the way, the benefits of using a standards-based system, make embedded X the most logical choice."

"Paxinos has been with Metro Link since 1990. He helped establish the company as the leading provider of X Window System software for UNIX, UNIX-like, Linux, Embedded Linux and embedded systems. Initially, Paxinos was responsible for direct product development, including X servers, ports of products to various operating systems, Real-Time video support and special projects. He also developed streamlined, Web-based internal processes for product and project tracking. Paxinos currently leads the growing engineering team, participates in several international standards committees and is a member of the Board of Directors of Linux International."
