Linux to replace VXworks at NASA (about time)

Hello,
Well it seems NASA has finally woken up to the superior solutions of using embedded, Real Time linux to replace an unnecessarily expensive RTOS, that Vxworks provides.
See the details:

You mean they've agreed to have a look at it for a few remote-sensing applications. I quote: "The project aims to increase the speed and flexibility of computers used in planetary rovers, mining vehicles, cameras, and sensors."
From past history, this is no guarantee they'll actually ever implement it, since the end-user often dictates what will be used - and the end-user for these things is not always NASA.
It's good to have you back, James.
