Consumer Linux received a boost today with PalmSource's announcement that it has joined the Consumer Electronics Linux Forum (CELF).
The CELF consortium, which aims to encourage adoption of Linux for home electronics devices, welcomed the provider of Palm OS as an Associate member.
John Ostrem, lead scientist at PalmSource, promised that the move would "advance the development of Linux-based products" by building on the Linux expertise that PalmSource gained with its recent acquisition of China MobileSoft.
CELF was established in June 2003 by Matsushita Electric Industrial, Sony, Hitachi, NEC, Royal Philips Electronics, Samsung Electronics, Sharp and Toshiba. It currently has over 50 members.
