Linux embedded in Boeing 737s

Wind River® is selling Linux™ as a submarine-hunting framework to go into Boeing 737s being modified by the USAF to specialise them for the task.

Wind River® still charges their per-developer up-front fees for the Linux™ versions of their products, but unlike their self-made VxWorks, there is no royalty fee after that.

Wind River® have also released a new update to their Commercial Grade Linux™ releases, known as “Wind River® Platform for Consumer Devices, Linux™ Edition 1.3”.
