"Well, I am here at the Embedded Systems Conference in Downtown San Francisco in the South Hall of the Moscone Convention Center. I decided to spend the day walking around see who was showing off PowerPC systems running Linux. So here is a quick summary of what I found."

"During my travels I came upon Cort Dougan, the PPC/Linux community tree maintainer! (He works for FSM Labs who do RT Linux.) We had a good chat about how things happen in the open source, how things are going etc. It was nice to talk with him in person instead of over irc where expression can sometimes get lost."

"The first booth that I cam upon was of course MontaVista Software (the company I work for). We just announced our Hard Hat Linux 2.0 software which is running on a few of the machines. The MontaVista Software booth (Booth 122) only had one PowerPC platform on display. An Embedded Planet - Linux Planet. This was using Hard Hat Linux Cross Development Kit 1.2 featuring IBM OTI Java."
