T2 SDE is not just a common Linux distribution - it is a flexible Open Source System Development Environment or Distribution Build Kit (some might even name it Meta Distribution ...). T2 allows the creation of custom distributions with bleeding edge technology, up-to-date packages and integrated support for cross compilation. Currently the Linux kernel is normally used - but we are expanding to Minix, Hurd, OpenDarwin and OpenBSD - more to come.
We specifically use the T2 SDE as base for Embedded Linux, Board Support Packages, Carrier Grade Linux and High Performance Clusters. Always when specifically engineered systems are requested.
