Ed Scannell and Michael Lattig, writing in, report . . .

“While the LinuxWorld expo in New York this week will showcase a raft of new technologies that spans the product spectrum, several major developers will be zeroing in on . . . embedded and handheld devices.”

“Leading the march will be Red Hat Software, which is expected to roll out its first product for the embedded market. Called Red Hat for Embedded Developers, the new toolset is designed to let developers create a range of open-source applications or handheld devices that contain as little as 32KB of memory.”

“Red Hat for Embedded Devices will contain the EL/IX set of APIs for embedded applications, which were announced late last year and will be formally rolled out at the show. EL/IX allows developers to create applications for appliances as well as higher-end desktop and server systems.”

“Red Hat Tools for Embedded Developers support x86 and PowerPC platforms and are expected to be available March 1. They will be priced at $599. That price will include e-mail-based installation support along with a one-year subscription to priority FTP service.”
