"Does HP, which already sells embedded software
products like the HP Chai virtual machine , plan to compete with
Embedded Linux software vendors like Lineo and MontaVista by
selling its Chai-LX device platform software to other companies?
"No," according to Mike Balma, director of marketing. "Chai-LX
will be used for our own internal purposes only and will not be
offered as a product to other companies," he said. "It's based on a
Red Hat Linux distribution, stripped down to make a small
foot-print and enhanced with device-oriented features like power
management," he added.
Bruce Perens , HP's senior strategist on Linux and Open Source,
put HP's commitment to Embedded Linux this way: "Linux is now the
standard operating system platform for embedded systems at HP."
