uClinux is a complete integrated development environment, set of
tools, applications, etc. for putting together
an embedded system running Linux. As a project it compares more
favorably to a distribution such as embedded Debian.
Linux Kernel development is about the Linux kernel.
Implicit in formally wrapping everything together is the presumption
that there is what a preacher I once new would call
"the only best" way of doing things.
I am extremely happy that uClinux is feeding the kernel proper. If
MicroBlaze support was already in the kernel.org trees
I would just use it from there.
