"Motorola's wholly owned Metrowerks subsidiary plans to invest $22.5m in Lineo, a Linux software and applications developer."

"The mobile phone giant said Metrowerks will acquire three million of Lineo's shares - about eight per cent of Lineo's issued capital stock. The Linux developer has also agreed to sell Motorola two million warrants to be converted into common shares of Lineo...."

"The investment and strategic partnership will result in joint products and services from all three companies, said Shlapak. The companies will work on combining Lineo's embedded Linux product, Embedix, with Metrowerk's CodeWarrior Integrated Development Environment for the next generation of embedded products. CodeWarrior for Embedix will support Motorola PowerPC, ColdFire, M-Core and 68K architectures."
