 Linux In the Automotive Industry

USA Today talks about Linux in the Auto industry.

""To lower costs and stay competitive, automakers are turning to inexpensive Linux-based computers for crash simulations, structural analysis and other tasks once handled by expensive high-performance systems. The auto industry's move away from computers based on custom hardware and the proprietary Unix operating system mirrors trends in other industries, including oil exploration and retail." /blockquote>
