"Lineo, Inc., a leading innovator in Linux-based embedded systems, today announced the development of uClinux 2.4, based on the pre-release Linux 2.4 kernel. Lineo's uClinux is a micro version of Linux that can be used in devices that use processors without a memory management unit (MMU) . The small hardware requirements of uClinux make it an ideal solution for low-cost, embedded devices that companies in a variety of markets have quickly adopted."

"With a typical kernel footprint of 512k bytes (or less) uClinux has proven to be the best choice for a Linux-based embedded solution. During this past week, Red Hat announced it had adopted uClinux to assist in the production of the NET + Lx development platform for Internet appliances. Other companies that have adopted uClinux for their products include Aplio for the AplioPhone 2.0, Axis Communication's Network Camera 2100, and the Adomo Set Top Home Thin Appliance. The commercial success of uClinux has propelled this popular open source project into a real industry-wide development."
