Raymarine MFD OS?

Does anyone know which embedded operating system Raymarine use in their new MFDs? Given that an e-series I recently looked at appears to be running tnftpd I'd guess something BSD-based but does anyone know exactly which distribution?

Re: Raymarine MFD OS?

It turns out to be linux. Latest firmware seems to be a 3.4 kernel. The system part is pretty lightweight and based around busybox. There's a bunch of GPL stuff in there and the e-series manual says that the licence can be found at "www;raymarine.com" but sticking "GPL" into the search engine on their web site yields nothing and nothing for "GNU". Anyone know where Raymarine keep their copy of the GPL and the source code covered by it?
