Spinning the press about technology

We’ve been an engineering driven company from day one – something that leads us to be frustrated with “analysts” and reporters who seem unwilling to challenge marketing. For example, here’s how a recent Investor’s Business Daily article starts:

“MontaVista Software thinks so…”

Hello! Anyone there able to use Google? Why is it that reporters who write such stuff won’t do a little research so that they can tell their readers Linux has been “ready for real-time” in the most demanding applications for over a decade?
