"MontaVista Software, Inc., developer of the Hard Hat Linux
operating system for embedded applications, today announced the
immediate availability of tools that streamline porting of legacy
VxWorks code from Wind River Systems, to a Linux platform. With the
new MontaVista tools, developers can reap the benefits of moving to
a full-featured, open-source platform without the massive
engineering burden usually associated with such a move."
"We are offering developers the shortest path to successful
deployment," said Jim Ready, embedded industry pioneer and
MontaVista CEO. "Designers are no longer tied to a single-vendor,
proprietary solution, bound to the past by the difficulties
involved in porting to a new, open-source platform. This tool is a
declaration of independence."
