Leading industry leaders composed of Matsushita Electric Ind. Co. Ltd, Sony Corp., Hitachi Ltd, NEC Corp., Royal Philips Electronics, Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd, Sharp Corp., and Toshiba Corp., have joined forces to establish the CE Linux Forum (CELF). CELF will discuss and formalize requirements for extensions to Linux to meet the needs of CE products such as audio/visual products and cellular phones.

CELF will publish such requirements and will accept and evaluate open source solutions that promises to support the published requirements. CELF will also promote the broad usage of Linux for CE products. The CELF is set to further improve the startup and shutdown timel, real-time capabilities, reduce ROM/RAM size requirements, and improve power management efficiency.

CELF's main activities will include defining requirements for a variety of extensions in "Linux based CE products," collaborating and reaching consensus with open source projects as well as with the Linux community, thereby promoting the proliferation of CE Linux-based digital electronics in the industry.
