Linux Gains Native RTOS Emulation Layer

[ Thanks to An Anonymous Reader for

“Newly available open source software could significantly
increase Linux’s utility in industrial computing applications. The
Xenomai/SOLO project aims to provide VxWorks and other RTOS
emulation in user-space on most any Linux kernel, and to deliver

real-time capabilities.

“In theory, Xenomai/SOLO could simplify the work involved for
companies porting legacy VxWorks and other RTOS applications to
Linux. Such ports let companies make the most of existing software
assets, while also taking advantage of Linux’s modern hardware
support, networking capabilities, user interface options, and
compatibility with a vast library of open source software…”
