"Hewlett-Packard Company announced today that Linux support has been added for its Chai Appliance Platform, a suite of integrated software components for creating Internet-enabled information appliances. Developers using Linux can effortlessly use the Chai Appliance Platform, conserving their resources for software development activities specific to the type of device they are building."

"Linux now joins Microsoft's Pocket PC (Windows(R) CE 3.0) as a source code reference platform for the Chai Appliance Platform."

"Embedded developers are embracing Linux in ever-increasing numbers, and we want to make it as easy as possible for them to use the Chai Appliance Platform to build their products," said William Woo, general manager of HP's Embedded Software Operation. "We've also added support for standards-based tools supplied by third parties."
