That said, LynuxWorks still develops, distributes, and supports Lynx OS. In fact, LynuxWorks promotes a twofold solution. According to LynuxWorks, programmers needing hard real-time performance should continue to use Lynx, and those who want open source solutions should use BlueCat, its embedded Linux distribution (indeed, they have drawn some criticism for using anti-GPL-like tactics to advocate the use of Lynx OS over Linux in the past). LynuxWorks has even modified its Lynx OS to enable unmodified Linux binaries to run as-is.

If you’ve heard something about one distribution or another, take the time to verify the validity of the information. In the case of a commercial distribution, contact the vendor. Chances are it knows where this information comes from and, most importantly, the rational explanation for it. This verification process, though, isn’t specific to embedded Linux distributions, but what is specific is the reputation commercial distributions build when their vendors contribute to the open source community.

Some other systems have no user interface whatsoever. For example, certain components of an autopilot system in a modern airplane may take care of controlling the wing ailerons but have no direct interaction with the human pilots (something you probably don’t want to consider next time you’re flying). Reasons for Choosing Linux There are a wide range of motivations for choosing Linux over a traditional embedded OS. Many of these are shared by those in the desktop, server, and enterprise spaces, while others are more unique to the use of Linux in embedded devices.
