"Q: Who are your competitors in your market?"

"A: The embedded market place really has two segments: proprietary embedded OS vendors and embedded Linux vendors. In the proprietary embedded market, Wind River, QNX and Microsoft are the biggest competitors. In the embedded Linux market, Montavista, LynuxWorks, and Red Hat are the largest competitors."

"Q: What are the most significant trends, developments or changes that you anticipate in your market segment over the next several years?"

"A: There are really two things: consolidation and the proliferation of embedded devices. Already in 2000 there has been a great deal of consolidation in the embedded Linux market. Between January and May of 2000, Lineo acquired six companies and has been actively assimilating technologies and products from these companies into our product offerings. A few strong companies have emerged through this consolidation and Lineo is certainly one of the leaders in the embedded space."
