"Among the most widely deployed embedded operating systems on the planet is Wind River's VxWorks real-time OS. This week, Intel's Wind River division is updating VxWorks to version 6.8, providing new multi-core and 4G wireless capabilities. The new VxWorks release comes as the competitive market for embedded operating systems is changing, with the acquisition of rival MontaVista software by chip maker Cavium. MontaVista develops an embedded Linux operating system release that Wind River competes against, with both VxWorks and Wind River's own embedded Linux release."
