Linux In a recent EE Times 2013 Embedded Market study, Android was the OS of choice for future embedded projects among 16 percent of the survey's participants, second only to 'in-house/custom' (at 28 percent). But if a spectrum of disparate approaches can be lumped together as a single option, why not aggregate the various shades of Linux to see how they compare? "Parsing the EE Times data this way makes it abundantly clear that Linux truly dominates the embedded market."

Edit: Just to reiterate, linux is a great choice for embedded devices. My only objection with your post was the notion that market position is solely based on merit without influence from market factors.


Agreed.

Linux got there on merit; but people will now choose it as you said for "de facto" reasons.
