The Linux operating system has become the dominant choice for new development projects over any other embedded OS for many different reasons. This paper will outline the challenges of embedded Linux development and the obstacles that can push software engineers off the path of rapidly delivering embedded products to market.

It will then provide an overview of MontaVista Linux 6 and show examples of how MontaVista Linux 6 helps to streamline the embedded Linux development process, delivering a faster time to market.
