Open Source in Industry

Embedded systems with high connectivity are almost exclusively based on the free embedded Linux operating system. Since around 2010, the free operating system has established itself as the de facto standard in the embedded area and has thus pretty much pushed Windows-embedded out of the market. The reasons for this are complex, but the fact that embedded Linux systems are based on open source software is probably one of crucial factors for this success.
