Linux provides a preemptive multitasking environment with powerful software development tools that many programmers are familiar with. Increased performance in hand-held devices has made it feasible to use the Linux operating system in these small devices. Due to the typical hand-held device's significant differences from workstations, alternative techniques are required to install Linux on a hand-held system and to develop useful applications. This talk will describe the development environment required to generate Linux and the associated software for a hand-held device, typical limitations of the devices, and techniques to install Linux on a hand-held device.
