  Embedded Linux | Linux Magazine
Linux has always been similar to most general-purpose operating systems in that its process scheduler is prohibited from running when a process is executing.
Linux and other open standards continue to gain significant momentum, especially in the military, which presents perhaps the greatest growth opportunity for Linux as the move to open standards-based technology ensues.
For Linux to achieve its potential as the unifying open standard for embedded applications, it's critical to provide assurances that any embedded middleware or application software that follows an appropriate set of guidelines will be supported by all conforming embedded Linux products from any vendor.

 Embedded Linux: BlueCat Linux 5
BlueCat® embedded Linux® from LynuxWorks™, based on the 2.6 kernel, is an implementation of the Linux model enhanced for use in embedded systems ranging from small consumer-type devices to large-scale, multi-CPU systems.
Linux 2.6 also features a rewritten scheduler that speeds up the process of selecting tasks for execution, which is of particular benefit to complex multitasking applications.
To ensure that the needs of embedded environments are met without compromise, BlueCat Linux is subjected to the same rigorous ISO 9001:2000 test procedures that qualify the LynuxWorks family of real-time operating systems.

 Embedded Linux applications: An overview
Increasingly, these embedded systems need to be connected to some sort of network, and thus require a networking stack, which increases the complexity level and requires more memory and interfaces, as well as, you guessed it, the services of an operating system.
The one disadvantage to running Linux on an embedded system is that the Linux architecture provides real-time performance through the addition of real-time software modules that run in the kernel space, the portion of the operating system that implements the scheduling policy, hardware-interrupts exceptions and program execution.
Because Linux is openly and freely available in source form, many variations and configurations of Linux and its supporting software components have evolved to meet the diverse needs of the markets and applications to which Linux is being adapted.
