I need to get the words clear. By "real target" you mean something like a 
board with some company's microprocessor on it, such as Atmel? (I mention 
Atmel since a previous post today talks about AT91SAM7X256.) And by 
"synthentic target" you mean that I would have a Linux machine set up to 
emulate a board, and then I could eventually take the code from the Linux 
to the board itself?

Is my understanding correct?

If so, maybe eCos is not for me? I want to run an app on a Windows XP 
machine and I want to get some sort of RT behavior. Maybe I've had a 
misunderstanding of what eCos is for.

Please comment if possible.
