QNX In today's entry in our Alternative OS Contest, James Ingraham takes a close look at QNX, the operating system based on the Neutrino microkernel. He concludes that "While you can probably find solutions for just about all of your desktop computing needs using the QNX RTOS, that is not QNX's strong suit. Its focus is real-time, embedded, and mission critical applications." Read on for the whole article.

"It may not be the best O.S. for everyone, but it certainly has its place in this world."

For the people that can get in touch with it, yes, maybe. Should I speak also of a revolutionary OS that I keep under cover and only a few (and rich) customers could affor ? I don't think so, because hardly few people will ever have to deal with...

That's the problem with QNX : with 6.0 and 6.1, I thought it was some 'early' versions that lacked features released as NC (Non Commercial) usage to the community as an appeal. Then with 6.2 and 6.3 I understood that QNX don't give a shit about the community and the only interrest is to make money (that's pretty normal).

It's just too sad QNX don't leave some geeks improve the desktop version they don't plan to support anymore.
