Growing Role for embedded Linux

According to Linux devices.com
A whitepaper from IDC describes profound changes in enterprise computing that could bring a proliferation of embedded Linux devices to an IT department near you. The paper also examines Red Hat’s evolving desktop and embedded Linux strategy in the context of this sea change.
The paper is entitled “Linux and Open Source Software as a Desktop Platform,” and was written by IDC VP Dan Kusnetzky and Al Gillen. It was sponsored by Red Hat.
The paper begins with the opinion that enterprises are shifting, fundamentally, toward network- or server-centric systems, often in conjunction with simple thin (embedded) clients.
