"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 reference platform.

"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."
