of course linux can be packaged as a small-footprint real-time 
operating system.

it has been that way from the very beginning.

distro's came second to the own-rolled.  never forget that!  distro's 
are not supposed to be embedded, or they wouldn't be distro's: they'd 
be "some device X, being used".

the hardware wrapping embedded linux (or any similar kernel) *is* the distro.
