uClinux Supports ColdFire MCF5282 And More

Developers using Motorola's ColdFire MCF5282 have another operating system alternative with SnapGear's open-source uClinux. Based on the 2.4 Linux kernel, this version supports the MCF5282's 10/100-Mbit/s Ethernet multiply-accumulate. Another uClinux distribution designed specifically for secure network appliance development is available as well. It includes a complete tool chain and supports a wide range of MMU and MMU-less microcontrollers.
