Linux.com looks ahead
to where embedded Linux is heading for 2013. The article forecasts Linux to replace realtime operating systems (RTOS) in many devices, Android getting into traditional embedded devices, more open source embedded Linux projects becoming available, expansion for Linux in the mobile and automotive spaces, and more. "As Android enters the general embedded realm, several new Linux-based mobile OSes  are stepping out to compete in the smartphone market. In 2013, the Linux Foundation's Tizen, Mozilla's Firefox OS, and Jolla's Meego spinoff, Sailfish, all plan to ship on new phones. If that's not enough, an upcoming mobile version of Ubuntu is due in 2014, HP's Open WebOS may yet reawaken on new hardware, and even the GNOME Foundation is planning a mobile-ready, developer-focused GNOME OS.
