Motorola Computer Group and Linuxcare have recently announced a strategic deal whereby Linuxcare will provide embedded Linux technical support and engineering services to Motorola Computer Group's support and development organization. The focus will be on embedded Linux product engineering, product customization, and application development.

Charles Babcock of ZDNet Interactive Week reports (see story here) “the contract is another sign of embedded systems vendors' interest in Linux for communications, Internet appliances, imaging, and industrial automation applications.” “Other firms shipping or planning to produce Internet appliances based on embedded Linux include Coollogic, Lineo, and Nokia” continues Babcock.
