Start-up backs BSD Unix for Intel chip

Wasabi Systems, which sells the NetBSD version of Unix, is supporting Intel's new IOP321 communications chip, the company said this week at the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco. NetBSD is a variant of the BSD family of operating systems, which is derived from Unix. The IOP321 is a version of Intel's XScale family. Intel says it's good for special-purpose "embedded" computing devices, including networking equipment such as network cards or switches, and for storage systems. Red Hat also supports the IOP321 with its eCos operating system, while LynuxWorks is offering its BlueCat Linux for the chip.
