It will need to support more processors in the long run i think.

Since most programmers' job title is what they claim it is on their resumes, surely they can rewrite it to address a better-paid market? :-) I am impressed that Linux has such momentum, it appears to be impossible to resist the pressure to implement it on your system, or offer a bundle of your finest middleware and a hopefully suitable Linux release. Presumably there are enough takers to make the investment viable. However, while Linux is unbeatable for some purposes, it would be naive and against Nature to claim any OS suits all roles, any more than Windows, VRTX or assembler would. Nonetheless, that is what is happening as Dilbert 'managers' are only approving the one tool that their guys can get FOR FREE to tackle every project: To a man having only a hammer, everything looks like a nail.' I find it quietly pleasing that Ada, far from dying off, is seeing a resurgence of interest, with upgrades even. That has to be the cheapest overall solution for anything even slightly mission-critical, even if you have to train your entire staff from scratch. BTW: What exactly are the qualifications for an Embedded Linux Programmer? Uh, or for a 'Programmer', even?

Yes this will affect the salaries of the Linux Engineers if you more focus towards the outcome of it, but simultaneously it will also increase the acceptability of Linux in embedded systems as Yocto Project is making the porting of OS hardware independent, this way it will also crate more opportunity and salary for embedded engineers.

That Yocto thing looks good. If they achieve the purpose of easing the development process for embedded Linux projects, then this will make embedded Linux proliferate. And Embedded Linux engineer's salaries decrease? Yikes!
