"MontaVista Software today announced that it had demonstrated
the first working version of embedded Linux targeting the Intel
XScale microarchitecture. The demo, featured in the MontaVista
booth (#403) at the recently-concluded LinuxWorld and Expo in New
York, highlighted Hard Hat Linux running on Intel's XScale
"The demo showcased Hard Hat Linux booting from flash memory and
supporting standard Linux features such as networking and command
shells in a diskless system with minimum memory resources. Of the
several purveyors of embedded Linux at the event, only MontaVista
was able to support the Intel platform and to show a
full-functioning system to the Linux community at large."
"With Hard Hat Linux for XScale, MontaVista shows its commitment
to provide embedded Linux for Intel platforms for mobile
computing," commented Jim Ready, MontaVista CEO and embedded
industry pioneer. "MontaVista proudly adds Intel XScale to the
industry-leading array of embedded CPUs that we support."
