From RTOS to Linux - Ville Voutilainen, Symbio

Linux is growing strong in embedded devices. Linux has a large number of contributors, a good hardware support, a rich software ecosystem, and industry standard APIs. There are a lot of benefits to gain from porting a system running on RTOS to Linux.
Fortunately porting software to run on Linux is straightforward. Unfortunately, reaching optimal performance is a large task. Application running on Linux depends on many external libraries, each implementing a specific service or function efficiently. These external libraries have different optimal usages, licensing terms, and quality. Selecting a correct set of libraries is difficult.
One approach to the problem is by first emulating the original RTOS implementation. Then gradually and iteratively refactor the initial software port until accepted quality level is reached.
