The Embedded Linux Consortium (ELC) announced that Metrowerks chief technology officer (CTO) Berardino Baratta has been elected to the ELC's board of directors. In this leadership position, Baratta, who is also Vice President of Metrowerks' Linux Solutions Group, plans to help the ELC's effort toward “an open and unified standard for embedded Linux distributions,” the ELC said.
“Metrowerks sees the enormous opportunity that the Linux operating system offers to manufacturers of embedded devices and the companies that supply them,” commented Baratta. “Metrowerks is committed to realizing the opportunities that consistency in embedded Linux standards can offer,” he added. “Establishing standard Linux profiles will help solutions vendors like Metrowerks better meet manufacturers' demands for market-ready embedded Linux technology.”
