+The RTEMS kernel is developed on a host computer where the user's application
+code is cross-compiled to the target hardware's processor instructions and
+linked to the RTEMS kernel and language runtime libraries, and any 3rd party
+packages. RTEMS is not a multiprocess operating system and self hosting the
+types of tools need to create executables is not feasable. As a result a range
+of support tools are needed and they need run on the wide range of avaliable
+host computers users wish to develop on. This section details the tools
+available on host computers RTEMS users and developers need to create RTEMS
