Sunnyvale, CA — (press release excerpt) — MontaVista Software Inc. today announced it is one of the first IBM business partners to join IBM's new 'Ready for IBM Technology' program, also announced today. As part of the new IBM initiative, third-party companies, such as MontaVista Software, which engineer, validate and test their software to work with products from IBM, can use a new logo from IBM in… their marketing that reads 'Ready for IBM Technology.'

The easily recognizable mark associated with MontaVista Linux Professional Edition 2.1 and its complementary products will provide official recognition that MontaVista products have been pre-configured to work in combination with a wide variety of IBM's chip solutions, including PowerPC microprocessors, PowerNP network processors, and other IBM Microelectronics products.

MontaVista Software was one of the first embedded software companies to develop a Linux-based platform for the IBM PowerPC family of processors. The two companies have also announced agreements for MontaVista Linux support for IBM network processors and STB controller chips. Earlier this year, IBM announced a small equity investment in MontaVista.
