    One of the favorite polls cited by nixophiles comes back to bite them:

    http://www.eetimes.com/news/latest/showArticle.jhtml?articleID=210700096

    "About one third of the respondents to an EE Times Europe poll are planning
    to use Linux as an embedded operating system in their next project. This
    compares with about 50 percent when the same question was asked one year
    ago.

    "About one third of the respondents to an EE Times Europe poll are planning
    to use Linux as an embedded operating system in their next project. This
    compares with about 50 percent when the same question was asked one year
    ago.

    "Some 33 percent of the respondents to latest poll, conducted during
    September, said they were planning to use Linux for a future embedded
    operating system; 26 percent said they planned to use a commercial operating
    system, up from 15 percent a year ago, and 16 percent said they would use an
    operating system developed in-house. This is slightly up on the 14 percent
    that said they would use an operating system developed in-house a year ago.

    "This leaves about one quarter of embedded engineers whose projects don't
    require an operating system, real-time or otherwise, according to the poll.
    This is also comparable with the 22 percent who answered that way a year
    ago."
