Can you please fix this sentence? It doesn't make any sense. "Most"
is making a definite statement of fact, while "may have no use" is
not.

Either you mean:

1. Most embedded systems have no use for them.

2. Embedded systems may have no use for them.

or expressing #2 in other words:

3. Many embedded systems have no use for them.

4. Some embedded systems have no use for them.

Take your pick. (But I doubt #1 is really true, and so I would like
to see some numbers to back up that claim.)

Thanks,
Richard
