NO. and about Linux not making inroads into the small-memory
and/or hard-realtime embedded market. those are important
qualifiers. Linux _is_ making inroads — "design win after
design win” is how I put it — in the embedded market when
there is memory to burn, or when hard-realtime is not needed.
it is WinCE which is not making much of an inroad into the
embedded market (no qualifiers).
