Consult your legal counsel if you are in any way unsure of how to proceed; we can’t tell you what the law says (only how the community will react to you). 22 | Chapter 1: Introduction One final issue of concern to many is the GPL version 3, which is in the early stages of adoption at the time of this writing.

The goal is, apparently, squarely aimed at embedded developers in an effort to prevent GPL circumvention by means of patent or DRM.

Falling prices and standardization of networking components are accelerating this trend. Most Linux devices have one form or another of network capability, be it wired or wireless in nature. 11n on the fly. Networking issues are discussed in detail in Chapter 10. 8 | Chapter 1: Introduction User interaction The degree of user interaction varies greatly from one system to another. Some systems, such as PDAs and the Nokia Internet Tablet devices mentioned earlier, are centered around user interaction, whereas others, such as industrial process control systems, might only have LEDs and buttons for interaction (or perhaps even no apparent I/O of any kind).

This makes it easy to integrate Linux within existing frameworks and port legacy software to Linux. As such, one can easily integrate a Linux system within an existing Windows network and expect it to serve clients through Samba (using Active Directory or NT-style Primary Domain Controller capabilities), while clients see little difference between it and an NT/Windows 2000 server. You can also use a Linux box to practice amateur radio by building this feature into the kernel, interface with a Bluetooth-enabled cell phone, or roam transparently between a variety of WiFi networks.
