It would appear that on Tue, 14 Jan 2003, Don Marti did say:

> I thought Sony was using MontaVista's distribution:

Sony and Matsushita, the parent company of Panasonic, are working to
gether on creating a distribution for use in consumer electronices.

It was on /. in mid December

The Sony press release is here:

Montavista's efforts are separate, as detailed in this Yahoo! News story:
http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story2&cid=1093&ncid=738&e=10&u=/pcworld/20030108/tc_pcworld/108562

Basically, Sony and Panasonic have no real desire to sell the distro, but
will use it in house.
