QNX If there is one operating system that has a special place in my heart, it's QNX. This microkernel operating system served as my main desktop operating system for months and months back in the day, during the short-lived QNX Desktop scene - which died out due to a lack of interest from QNX' parent company, QNX Software Systems. The money is in the embedded and high reliability markets, and that's where QSS - understandably - focused its efforts. QNX was sort-of open sourced in September 2007, and today the company has announced the release of QNX 6.4, the first major release since 6.3 in 2004.

I can't help but wonder how computers would be different if QNX desktop had taken off.

Insanely fast, insanely small - (looked quite good too I remember)

I look at my pc now. 2gb ram 160hd and my 8gb windows folder and how p1ss poor slow my pc is (running vista) and wonder where it all went wrong!
