| We can all be quite proud of the enormous progress Linux has made in
| transforming the embedded OS marketplace from one which was highly fragmented

Embedded Linux research report ships

| EDC noted that some 40 percent of the survey's 500 respondents were targeting
| embedded Linux.

| Also in the earlier reports, Andrews observed that the need for RTOS source
| code was "one of the reasons that proprietary RTOSes created in-house for a
| specific system have long been popular, and now it's a primary motivating
| factor in the adoption of Embedded Linux."
| The now completed survey results are said to include "expert analysis" from
| Ann Thryft, a 20-year industry veteran. The report includes chapters on
| platforms, processors, tools, languages, security, target devices, mobile
| development, and of course, Linux.
