Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"5NINE, the leading developer of Wireless Data
Infrastructure (WIS/I) technology for Linux, announces the launch
of WMLBrowser.org, an open source development project for creating
a WML Browser to work with all types of Linux environments.
Since Linux is already being used in a wide range of devices and
architectures such as PDAs, smart cards, game consoles, watches,
appliances and cell phones, it will require WAP client technology
to make it an attractive alternative for wireless device hard ware
"Taking into consideration the wide range of devices that will
exist, Linux will make a perfect choice as an operating system for
them. The GPL license allows any hardware manufacturer to modify
Linux for the target system," says Boris Kuschel, Chief Technology
Officer of 5NINE, "WMLBrowser.org will provide them with even more
incentive to use Linux with their wired or wireless devices."
"The Wireless Markup Language (WML) is the language used in the
Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) as a markup language for
devices with tight resource constraints, but not limited to,
memory, bandwidth and screen size."
