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.

Thanks for the link.

Note that they said that the BIOS was checking the memory and their application didn't: memory check take the majority of BIOS time on my computer so the comparison is biased.

That said, I agree that BIOS shouldn't test memory by default: it should be the job of the OS to check memory continuously (when plugged for laptops) to report potential memory issue.
