where was that web server?

Linux + Apache is a much larger solution. The GoAhead server is
very small and functional for simple web work. I'm not very
familiar with how Linux works in a small embedded application,
but I wasn't sure how well Linux would respond to interrupt and
priorities. Specifically, if the OS is late in response to an
interrupt from the MP3 decoder, you'll hear it. I only have 16 meg
RAM on this thing, no MMU, and no disk, and currently, 16 meg is
RTEMS is very small and remarkably reliable for me. When I first
started using it (3 yrs ago), Linux was only just getting into
embedded applications. I'm crazy about Linux and I use it all the
time, but the developer's network is just a little flaky to me.
I can't know when the head dude of the Linux embedded project is
going to take on some other project and leave. RTEMS is well
supported, growing remarkably fast, and corporately sponsored.
I guess I should note that this is just a personal project I
work on in my free time. I have no current plans to sell
