Essentially, what I'd like is some sort of objective opinion as to
whether or not ecos is a suitable kernel to use for an embedded system,
or if in fact there is a much better reason to use Linux, or perhaps one
of the BSD family, FreeBSD perhaps.
What is essential is the ability to react to a given event within,
something approaching 20 milliseconds, which I think is some sort of
hand wavy definition of 'real-time'.
If anybody has some good pros or cons for or against Linux/ecos/FreeBSD,
I'd be very interested and grateful to hear them.
