Re: [microblaze-uclinux] Microblaze uClinux 2.6.11
MicroBlaze uClinux *is* supported by a real company - PetaLogix.
www.petalogix.com . We are working with companies all over the world who are
putting mb-uclinux in real products.
If there's something you need, email enquiries@xxxxxxxxxxxxx, we'll work out a
contract and do the work.
