“A suggested vision for the organization is that of an Embedded Linux Consortium (ELC) that is 'a nonprofit, vendor-neutral trade association whose goal is the advancement and promotion of embedded Linux throughout the embedded, applied, and appliance, and applied computing markets'. The members contribute their membership dues and efforts, in return for a growing market for all.”
“The mission might consist of two objectives:
- The first objective, which might be an automatic result of forming the ELC, would be “To quickly establish the market perception that, instead of there being two main options for embedded OSes (i.e. Microsoft and non-Microsoft), there are three: Microsoft, Linux, and 'other'.”
- Objective two, is to rearrange the ordering of objective #1; i.e.: “To make Linux the #1 OS choice for developers designing embedded systems.”
