Community-maintained build systems like Buildroot and Yocto have abstracted and automated Linux embedding, to the point that any developer can create a distribution for most of the architectures and platforms. However, enterprises running embedded Linux in production and at scale oftentimes have requirements that community contributions do not address. A gap which embedded Linux vendors fill by offering expertise and enterprise support, thus reducing time to market.
Device manufacturers therefore face a dilemma today: whether to roll their own Linux distribution as an internal platform for embedded projects, or whether to use a commercially supported embedded Linux distribution.
This webinar will help you make this decision
