Linux in the Real World

Linux has several convenient strong points when working with non-standard hardware. Freely available source code allowed Grant Edwards to compete a project much more easily than he would have been able to without Linux.

Grant Edwards (edwar028@gold.tc.umn.edu) is an electrical engineer for a manufacturer of process control equipment. He has been messing with Unix systems while doing product design work since the early 1980's.
