I missed small-memory, but I think I covered the RTOS bit.. Is small
memory that important anymore even? The Netgear WG602v2 on my desk
here was dirt cheap and has (iirc) 8MB of RAM and runs uclinux and
supports a couple of things.
RAM is fairly cheap, even in quantities needed to run Linux or
ucLinux. The RT part is harder to do with a 'big' OS.
Does it even matter what OS exactly it is as long as it's Free and
suitable for the task?
