Why Linux? Kung cited several reasons. First, Linux is a nonproprietary, standards-based open system that can lead to a faster and higher rate of innovation, he said.

The software can also be customized for embedded systems. "Because we control the code, we have more freedom to customize it and optimize software to meet a customer's specific needs," Kung said. "This is a huge advantage of open-source software over closed source."
