One of the biggest growth areas for Linux comes from the embedded market. Linux is used to power everything from consumer electronics to medical devices, thanks to embedded Linux distros.
Intel’s Wind River division is one of the leading embedded Linux distributions and today announced the second update to its Wind River Linux 4 platform, which first debuted in October of 2010. The new update includes a pre-integrated graphics stack as well as a LAMP (Linux/Apache/MySQL/PHP) stack for applications.
Nithya Ruff, Senior Director of Global Linux Product Marketing at Wind River, told InternetNews.com that there has been increasing demand for integrated graphics for embedded devices. The new Wind River Linux update provides developers with a choice of the open source GTK and QT frameworks as well as Wind River’s proprietary Tilcon graphics framework.
