QNX For some inexplicable reason I missed the fact that one of my favourite operating systems saw a new release last month. On May 28 QNX Software Systems released QNX Neutrino RTOS 6.4.1 and the associated Momentics Tool Suite, also at version 6.4.1. Even though it's a point release, there's some really cool and new stuff in here.

I wonder how well this release would perform on my eeepc 901, has anyone heard anything about the hardware support for these devices?

The only references I found was a 2007 post in openQNX forums and a video link on Truveo.

it is under experimental suport; http://community.qnx.com/sf/wiki/do/viewPage/projects.bsp/wiki/BSPA...
(scroll to the bottom).

if you want to use it as a loptop os Dell's latitude 8 series are you best bet. for desktops, andthing with intels 3 series is good. like the Vostro 200.

I think they should have released a Desktop version. I understand that embedded is their strong source of income. For this reason they should have made clearly a desktop version for the community as a technology preview and open for contributions.

My two favorite OS's. BeOS and QNX. I really wish both were popular like Linux for the desktop. BeOS obviously won't achieve this as it no longer exist (talking about the original). QNX has moved in another direction.

I'm downloading QNX at the moment. Can't wait to install it. ;)

QNX was getting nice and popular for a minute with the NC edition, 6.2.1, sad they didnt keep the community going like it was... i loved it.. im more user then anything, and i used it as my day to day OS for months..

I just installed it under vmware and it's still awesome. I miss QNX. At this point not much point in going crazy over it as it has pretty much zero chance of ever becoming a desktop mainstay. I will keep it around and mess with it though. ;)

I like the non-commercial license. Let's me play with all the fun stuff with none of the cost. ;)

Look up any QNX screenshots. I don't think the GUI has changed much.

Forgive my ignorance. I attempted once but got lost in the jungle of targets. Is there a short HOWTO to install it in vmware?

It just installed for me. No tricks or anything fancy. Just installed it under the 'Other' OS option. I did remove the floppy support, but since my laptop doesn't have a floppy drive I didn't figure it would hurt anything. ;)

Tried a live-boot. Resolution had to be 640x480. Changing it made the screen black, and everything non-responsive. No network detected, no nothing. Guess I have too new hardware, I dunno :/

QNX doesnt like new hardware (new being intel 4 series stuff, some of it works most of it doesn't) or any new AMD stuff. Intel is much more wideley suported, especially the 3 series or younger. Atom stuff is starting ot get good official suport.
