What happens in real life is that an acquired company, many times still flows within it's original course. If the branch is small enough and Big brother can't keep an eye on it all the time. Of course. I think Intel do good to have a foot on Android territory.

In China, VxWorks OS is seldom be used. The embedded linux is the most popular, of course. In the library, you could discover the difference. There are many many books about linux,ARM, and it is difficult to find books on VxWorks. After all, WindRriver is a company that persuit profit is its first target. Therefore, the WindRiver's people have to follow the market hot point in order to get profit.

WindRiver has been supporting both Android and Embedded Linux (and toolsets on top of them) for a while in addition to VxWorks. Nothing new on that side.

This goes back to what Intel stated when it acquired WindRiver, that it would continue to support multiple architectures and continue to be run as a wholly owned Intel subsidiary. It makes sense to continue multiple chip architectures for the embedded space given the penetration of ARM in the embedded world.

I wonder why WindRiver is working for Android. If I'm right they have their own OS VxWorks which is uses in many machine critical applications. Why did Widnriver team has android expertise people? Is it just a technology team to gain some revenue in the booming Android market?

Here's a strange one: an Intel subsidiary helping a chip company get Android working on its ARM-based processor. What happens if Leadcore wants to go quad-core and start powering tablet and ultrabook computers in competition with Intel?
