OSNews, Generic OSes Embedding Linux can apparently become a bit messy. This is set to change. With the support of Intel, the Linux Foundation has recently launched the "Yocto Project" This project is not a linux distribution or platform but a complete embedded Linux development environment with tools, metadata, and documentation. The project currently targets four architectures: ARM, MIPS, PowerPC and x86 (32 and 64 Bit). Intel's support for the project can best be summarized from its own press release: "Intel is supporting the Yocto Project with code and resources to help provide high-quality developer tools assisting companies with the creation of custom Linux-based systems for embedded products on any hardware architecture."

I don't think so. AFAICT this is not an Intel project.
