    SAN FRANCISCO, Embedded Systems Conference, April 10 /PRNewswire/ --
 Lineo(TM) Inc., a leading innovator in embedded Linux systems, real-time and
 high availability solutions, today announced the Lineo Embedix(TM) Board
 Development Kit (BDK).  The Lineo Embedix BDK is a complete development
 environment for configuring, customizing and deploying Linux-based embedded
 solutions.  Each BDK is tailored to a specific board used in various embedded
 devices.
     "Lineo Embedix BDK will become the first choice for the Linux-savvy
 developer who demands immediate results in the development process," said
 Bryan Sparks, Lineo CEO.  "Lineo Embedix BDK gives the embedded developer
 control of the project with access to source code and the ability to rebuild
 the source after customizations.  The BDK is a complete host to target
 development environment."
     Lineo Embedix BDK is a board specific tool that is focused on providing a
 complete toolchain, essential packages, source code as well as pre-configured
 binaries for the embedded project at hand.  Using installation and deployment
 wizards built for a specific board, the developer can quickly move from host
 installation to target deployment in less than 15 minutes.
     Lineo Embedix BDK has broad board and processor coverage with support for
 processor families such as PowerPC, x86, MIPS and ARM.  In an effort to
 further remove barriers faced by embedded developers, Lineo Embedix BDK
 supports multiple host platforms including versions of OpenLinux and RedHat.
