Last month, Intel announced that they were going to purchase Wind River Systems. The unfortunate thing about this deal is that Wind River currently supports a variety of processors in the embedded space, including the Intel architecture. There seems to be some concern that in the future if that support will slowly whittle down to just the Intel architecture. VxWorks has quite the reputation for stability, and the question is would people move to Intel processors to keep using it? Are more semiconductor firms going to follow Intel and start making purchases?
