According to Axiomtek, the kernels come with device drivers for all onboard functions, and interfaces for graphical environments based on XFree86 and Qt. They also come with an SDK (software development kit) said to enable feature customizations that include keyboard layout and timezone changes to support multilanguage operation and internationalization.
