ATCA proponents look to open up software features

,----[ Qupte ]
| Motorola's embedded communications computing group, in particular, is touting 
| the adoption of an open-source implementation of the Service Availability 
| Forum's Application Interface Spec.  



Motorola and the FOSS that Wasn't

,----[ Quote ]
| When Motorola decided to write an "open source" Service Availability 
| Framework they, perhaps unknowingly, illustrated a disturbing trend in 
| the FOSS (free and open source software) world. 


Motorola Announces Intention to Form Industry-wide Consortium to Lead OpenSAF

,----[ Quote ]
| The company also announced the first release of the open source code 
| related to the project. The consortium also will manage any future 
| development of the OpenSAF code base. Leading companies including 
| Ericsson, HP and Nokia Siemens Networks have expressed support for 
| this initiative.
| The open source project will establish a broadly adopted high availability 
| operating environment that can be leveraged by computing technology 
| companies,   


Motorola Initiates Industry-wide Project to Create Open Source High
Availability Operating Environment Based on Service Availability Forum

,----[ Quote ]
| Motorola, Inc. today announced it is initiating a new open source
| project to develop a complete high availability operating
| environment based on Service Availability Forum(TM) (SA Forum)
| standards. 
| ... Combined with ATCA based hardware and a Carrier Grade Linux operating 
| system, OpenSAF provides a key high-availability component to complete a 
| full carrier grade commercial-off-the-shelf solution.


Motorola touts Linux support for 32-way ATCA blade

| Some of the first widely available 64-bit chips were based on Alpha, 
| and Alpha was the second architecture (after x86) to support Linux, 
| back in the mid-90s. Linux founder Linus Torvalds wrote the 
| port himself, paving the way for ports to many other 
| architectures, which quickly followed.


Open Mobile Alliance to Support Mobile Linux Handsets

,----[ Quote ]
| The Linux Phone Standards (LiPS) Forum says has established a formal liaison 
| and framework for cooperation between the Open Mobile Alliance (OMA) and 
| LiPS. In particular, LiPS delivers specifications and standards for services 
| and user applications on Linux-based telephony platforms, and OMA develops 
| open specifications for mobile content and services.

Motorola leaves Linux users in the lurch with its Linux smartphone

,----[ Quote ]
| When Motorola released its smartphone running linux, I thought that it was a 
| great match for my requirements. I later found that the synch. options were 
| Microsoft only, so I contacted Motorola...  


Motorola sees Linux as its mobile mainstay

,----[ Quote ]
| Cell phones traditionally have used proprietary operating systems, fragmented 
| even among one manufacturer's products. Motorola and other vendors have also 
| opened up phone platforms through the Java and BREW software environments. 
| Linux will help to further expand the community of developers for software, 
| which is becoming an increasingly important part of mobile phones, said 
| Christy Wyatt, vice president of ecosystem and market development at 
| Motorola. The company has shipped about 9 million Linux handsets in the past 
| four years and is now extending the OS down from smartphones to midrange 
| handsets such as the Razr2.        


Motorola ships a U.S. Linux mobile phone

,----[ Quote ]
| It's finally happened. Motorola last month quietly shipped its first 
| Linux-based mobile phone "bound for North America," in its words. 
| Additionally, the world's third-largest handset vendor (Mot was passed up by 
| Samsung this year) is offering new "MotoMAGX" tools supporting native Linux 
| third-party apps.     


,----[ Quote ]
| "Linux will take a significant--I'm not allowed to say 'dominant'--market
| share of mobile phone operating systems," she predicted. Motorola expects
| 60% of its phones will use a version of embedded Linux "in a short 
| time," Wyatt said.
