 Wind River Systems
 Linux as a Device Operating System

 Have you ever wondered what software is inside your set top box?
 your cell phone? the network appliance in your data center?
 Chances are it is or will soon be Linux. Industry Analysts have
 predicted that more than 30% of all Intelligent Device
 Applications will be developed on the Linux platform this
 year. In fact, you may want to consider a custom Linux
 application appliance if the traditional enterprise deployment of
 applications is not keeping pace with your business demands.

 The presentation will focus on the industry trends that are
 driving Linux into the real time and not so real time device
 software arena, including observations on where Linux fits well

 While the lines between enterprise Linux application development
 and device application development are blurring, there key
 differences in the development paradigm. In an embedded platform
 issues such as board bring up, creating a Linux boot image and
 debugging the kernel and/or the application present challenges
 not found in enterprise Linux. Wind River will demonstrate its
 capabilities to support native and embedded cross development.
