FreeHand Systems used embedded Linux to build an electronic music reader designed to replace paper-based sheet music in practice, lesson, and performance settings.

The MusicPad Pro Plus runs a modified MontaVista Linux kernel an a MIPS-based AMD processor. Find out more about this interesting Linux-powered device in our complete device profile:
