"The Embedded Linux Consortium today announced formation of ELC-Europe, a spirited initiative to accelerate the ELC's European presence via promotion, marketing, and standardization-related activities across the region. At an organizing meeting here, representatives from dozens of technology firms ranging from startups to Global 100 companies began a process that will quickly lead to increased European and global visibility for the Linux operating system.

The overflow meeting attracted over 30 companies (see list at end). Dr. Inder Singh, ELC Chairman and CEO of LynuxWorks, said, "The global mission of the ELC to promote embedded Linux will be enhanced by strengthening it at the regional level. It is appropriate that Europe, where Linux originated, is our first step in this direction. ELC-E is a vibrant and exciting example and we welcome these firms and individuals and their fresh voices to our mission."
