Today, Linux is woven into the fabric of our technology. Things such as printers, routers, TVs and phones all have their own "Inner Penguin". Yet it was never originally intended to be used beyond desktop and server PCs. A lot of things had to happen before Linux could break out of the PC
environment and make its way in the world as a jobbing jack-of-all-trades. Since the early beginnings of embedded Linux in the late 1990's many people have contributed time and know-how that has resulted in today's Linux based embedded operating systems. This talk describes some of the key milestones and the events and people behind them.
