"Perhaps as proof that you can find good coffee in Utah, Embedded Linux player Lineo Inc. made a single-handed attempt to corner the embedded Linux news market Monday, releasing no less than five major corporate announcements."

"In addition to announcing that its flagship Embedix distribution now supports ARM cores and high availability clustering, the Linden, Utah.-based company unveiled a new open source project website, opensource.lineo.com."

"...Another reason behind the sudden flurry of activity might be the recent announcement that Lineo competitor LynuxWorks has joined the race to become the first embedded Linux IPO."

"LynuxWorks, makers of both the proprietary LynxOS and the newer Blue Cat Linux distribution, a modified version of Red Hat (RHAT) 6.1, announced the completion of a $35 million secondary funding round June 19. The announcement comes eight weeks after Lineo announced its own $37 million secondary funding round. Lineo has since filed for an IPO."
