Motora, Linuxcare team up

— 4:59 PM on December 22, 1999

Motorola announced today that it has chosen Linuxcare to provide Linux support for its embedded systems. This is one of the first agreements of this kind between a Linux vendor and an embedded systems company.

Under the terms of the contract, Linuxcare's Technical Support Strategic Business Unit (SBU) will provide backline engineering support to Motorola Computer Group's support and development organization. Under its Professional Services SBU, Linuxcare will work with the Motorola Computer Group's product engineering and customer support services on product customization and application development. The Linuxcare University SBU will provide worldwide courseware licensing and instructor technical support for Motorola Computer Group's training programs.
There has been a lot of talk about the potential of Linux in various embedded systems. With an industry leader like Motorola making this kind of agreement it, looks like we are starting to see a new trend in the embedded systems industry.
