BW: ON Channel To “Awaken” Latent Embedded Linux OS Market

“ON Channel Inc.(TM), a developer of embedded Linux software for
consumer Internet access devices and the embedded industrial
market, today announced it has begun integrating and customizing
its OS 2000 embedded Linux software for specific consumer solutions
shipping this quarter.”

“ON Channel’s primary customers are OEMs and developers of
consumer electronics, Internet access devices, and embedded
industrial solutions. OS 2000 gives those customers the key
features of a fully functional Linux OS — reliability, stability,
security, and high functionality in a small memory footprint,
specially tailored to OEM specific hardware.

“The market for a Linux-based embedded OS has been latent,
awaiting someone to address the technical challenges of reducing
the kernel size to meet the memory footprint and functionality
requirements of embedded systems,” said Bill Tauskey, ON Channel
President and CEO. “I believe we have accomplished this with OS
2000. ON Channel allows for applications previously restricted by
memory, cost, or other constraints to now become economically
viable.”
