Embedded Linux soon in every mobile device?
Linux - just a buzz word, or is there more about this system which could, according to some market observers, become an established force in the mobile world?
From LinuxDevices we learn that a growing need for complex requirements for internetworking between packet-based and other kinds of voice and data networks will put embedded Linux on an increasing number of mobile devices in near future.

Even five years ago, if people had said Linux would have made the incursions into business it already has, many would have scoffed, but linux has become a reliable and respected alternative to other *nix setups. I can see it making similar inroads into the embedded OS market as well, and probably much faster, as it's now seen as a mature and stable solution.
