"AMIRIX Systems Inc. is pleased to announce the release of a powerful new open source configuration tool for embedded Linux systems. Amirix is a proud sponsor of the non-commercial "Embedded Debian Project" whose goal is to create a completely open, multi-vendor embedded Linux software resource based on the Debian GNU/Linux distribution."

"As the Y2K 'problem' has shown, embedded computers are everywhere. From cars to refrigerators to automated banking machines, embedded computers have an enormous impact on our day-to-day lives," says Debbie LeValliant, president. "These computers are increasingly more powerful and will require a full fledged operating system. We believe embedded Linux will be that system and the release of this open source tool moves us closer to this goal."

"The CML2+OS system allows the configuration and generation of both a Linux kernel and an operating system. Its purpose is to assist embedded Linux developers in configuring and generating small (1 to 10Megabyte) Linux target systems."

"This first development release is entirely in keeping with the goals of The Embedded Debian Project and is consistent with Debian's 'social contract' with the free software community," says Andrew Reid, Vice President of Technology. "AMIRIX values, and is a strong supporter of the open source movement. We are really excited about the potential of this tool and expect it to become the de-facto standard for configuring embedded systems."
