QNX In this article, we will explore the creation of a custom widget for an automotive application using the Zinzala SDK. Introduced in April 2003, Zinzala is a BeOS flavored Software Development Kit for QNX. It has improved since then, taking on small features inspired by the Symbian OS. Because Zinzala brings in the benefits of object oriented programming, it can leverage the quality of your QNX RTOS based embedded products.

So similiar that it is scary! I guess they say that immitation is the sincerest form of flattery...

btw, does he need to check his iWindow before deleting it??

// delete the window
delete iWindow;

You are right, checking that iWindow is not NULL is not
necessary .. it's just an old habit I have ;)

Zinzala is not so similar to Symbian hopefully! ;) It just implement a couple of features that I beleive are valuable.


QNX Test Drive
by The MESMERIC on Thu 9th Dec 2004 19:58 UTC

I've installed QNX Momentics on my laptop.
I believe it will expire after Jan 10th.
No where in the site it says about pricing.

I mean I was just curious about the OS given that it is based on the micro-kernel approach rather than monolithic.

It's meant to be faster and more responsive.
But the Window-Manager is very similar to ice-wm
no anti-alias on the fonts.
avant web-browser crashes.

again i just installed out of curiosity - interesting experience - but will have to uninstall it very soon.

wow ...

by QNXer on Thu 9th Dec 2004 22:30 UTC

my wheel mouse doesn't work
and its voyager that crashes (not avante)
and everything here is so very not anti-aliased


oh the urgency to uninstall this OS

i feel a silent pressure here
similar to asking for resignation before being fired.

QNX Photon does Anti-Aliasing, you just have to turn it ON
in the Settings ;-)

Most of QNX will work after the expiry date. It is only the QSS Momentics development tools that will stop working (PhAB, qcc, QCC, etc.) All of the basic OS will keep working, like Photon, gcc, ls, mv, etc. This is what is called the non-commercial version of QNX. There is quite an active community involved with the NC version of QNX - see

Speaking of QNX related websites, there is also QNXZone :

I was playing with the Development Suite
by The MESMERIC on Fri 10th Dec 2004 01:37 UTC

It will be a shame to see it going.
I was quite liking it.

And thanks for the anti-aliased setting
mmm .. have to locate the settings now ;)

any answer why the scroll mouse doesn't work?

the best feature i liked so far is the package manager
that was extremely cool.

thanks for the links.
looks like I won't be uninstalling the OS then.
