LinuxDevices.com: HP will supply Motorola with a Carrier Grade Linux version of Debian, as part of a long-term deal announced yesterday. HP chose the free, non-commercial Linux distribution over commercial alternatives in order to expedite feature additions, a company spokesperson said.
HP marketing manager Doug Small explains that HP's TEM (telecommunications equipment manufacturer) and NEP (network equipment providers) customers such as Motorola required features not available in currently shipping Linux distributions. HP thus decided to roll its own Carrier Grade Linux based on Debian, in order to have more control over the system and its components than would be possible when working with a commercial provider.
