People all have a so limited idea of what an embedded system can run and
do. I started the MIPS port of Linux at Waldorf Electronics in '94 as part
of a killer synthesizer project. A synthesizer with a gig of RAM and with
it's 65 processors enough compute power to be covered by those military
export restrictions and X GUI blows most people imagination of what embedded
systems are. Yet it fits perfectly in the definition of the term ``embedded
system''.
