Microsoft It seems like Microsoft Research is really busy these days with research operating systems. We had Singularity, a microkernel operating system written in managed code, and late last week we were acquainted with Barrelfish, a "multikernel" system which treats a multicore system as a network of independent cores, using ideas from distributed systems. Now, we have a third contestant, and it's called Helios.

You think that QNX is that widely used? I also forgotten that Vxworks is a Microkernel.

So ya.. a shitload of them in embedded systems.


But having personal, first-hand experience with QNX.. they are pretty detestable things to work with and on and can't scale up very well.
