To DSO, or not to DSO — a developer’s perspective

Mar 29, 2006 — by LinuxDevices Staff — from the LinuxDevices Archive — views

Yesterday, we published an article defining Device Software Optimization (DSO), based on an interview with John Bruggeman, chief marketing officer at Wind River, which coined the term. In response to that article, we received a thoughtful “rebuttal” from Christopher Stone, offering a developer's perspective on DSO.

Stone is a partner in a small consulting firm that specializes in developing real-time, embedded, open-source software. He is also the founder of Mekanix, an “industrial grade” Linux distribution for factory automation and plant intelligence applications.
