Wind River to Host Seminar Series on Linux Migration in Device Software

WHAT: Wind River Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: WIND), the global leader in Device Software Optimization (DSO), will host a series of seminars to discuss Linux’s growing presence in device software and the trend toward migration from legacy Real Time Operating System (RTOS) platforms to open source in device software development.

WHO: Bill Weinberg, Linux pundit and Open Source Architecture Specialist at Open Source Development Labs (OSDL), will keynote at each of the three seminars.

WHY: Industry experts say that nearly thirty percent of all intelligent device applications will be developed on the Linux platform this year. The seminar will examine how to streamline the migration process from legacy RTOS to open source and the issues device software developers should consider in roadmap decisions, including cost, time-to-market, hardware support, performance, application-specific resources, and IP protection. The seminar will also provide a complete overview of Linux migration options, including development tools, embedded Linux platform choices, and open source technology, educational, and community-based resources. Attendees will learn about the trade-offs between various paths and get guidance to help them understand the ecosystem for Linux device software applications.
