Linux In Consumer Electronics

ZDNet is running an article that coincides with the big consumer electonics show in Las Vegas that highlights the use of Linux in electronic (non-computer) devices. Monta Vista is the vendor that has been most successful in selling its version of “embedded” Linux into devices, and they’re set to release a new version especially for consumer electronics. The article gives a good background on Linux’ adoption in the consumer space, in places where people don’t know, and don’t care, what OS their gadget is running.
